The June 2011 ‘Pictures Of the Month’ are curated by Michael Dietrich; born 1985 and currently living in Vienna, Austria. About his work, he says;
I try to reflect different atmospheres within spaces on the edges of cities, on the streets and in nature. Particularly i´am interested to choose places that are without human being to shoot the silence.
The art of documentation always reminds me how things are and how we´ve created them. It´s kind of a adventure to search for spots where people have passed, the spaces then take the life of their own.
Since i was working as a lens manufacturer in the past, i got used too capture moments around me. Especial, i focus on the combination between light, modern architecture, nature & landscapes.
Curating “The pictures of the month” for [^]Land was a good experience for me and my upcoming work. It took me days, to search through huge networks, magazines & blogs. i viewed a lot of hot stuff and was stunned how all the artists keep doing.
