Photography meets painting in the works of Gerhard Labudda. The photographer's studies of nature are assured pictorial sketches of a fascinating range of motifs. His camera work adheres to the strict aesthetics of Wabi philosophy, the Japanese language of form. The rediscovery of simplicity provides the viewer with an striking visual experience.

Impressive views of the north of Hamburg are juxtaposed with detailed studies of natural structures. Colours and forms, pictures from a distant world, transform concrete and familiar objects into cosmic, metaphysical dimensions.
