my new favourite person

Axel Hütte is a German contemporary landscape photographer. Hütte is part of a generation of German photographers that includes Thomas Struth, Thomas Ruff, and Andreas Gursky, who have been influential in the creation of this unique photographic aesthetic. His photographs follow a strict objective approach devoid of narrative and yet evoke emotive qualities with poetic sensibility.

30 second word association with myself:

Honours – Lost – Lonely – Love – Hills – Tea – Nothingness – Concrete – Sublime

Now that that is done we can proceed. So hiatus of the academic kind has kept me from coming up for air. Let’s take what we can get and that getting will involve fun finds and facts from my research.
