Real Landscapes

Thomas Wrede's series of photographs entitled "Real Landscapes", currently on show in Munich, captures the grandeur of nature and juxtaposes tiny models against these real natural settings. By simply adding these models and kits to introduce another presence in nature, a sublime effect is created. Colliding the two realities results in Wrede's humorous edit on the landscape and represents on a basic level a mirror for our dreams, wishes, and yearnings.

'i see the world as a kind assembly kit, a grand stage, as image and simulacrum.' - Thomas Wrede
