About the Work
COLORS OF THE WIND
Until recently, the German/Czech photographic couple René & Radka, were known for their spectacularly poetic images, of stylish but mysetrious children.
Since then, the photographers have been fascinated with natural elements: air and wind, which give form and movement to flying objects.
For the first time, René & Radka don't put their protagonist into the scene. They let theselves be seduced by the magical appearence of immense bright colours against the backdrop of a wekk lit sky. Although the new photography show the beach, sky and the horizon, we are still given the impression of being under water. We marvel at this almost surreal scene, with heroes that are mostly from the water world: fish, jellyfish and octopus. Is this a dream, or is a stage setting by Jules Vernes?
The emotional esthetic of these images is powerful. They remind us of luminous water colours or colorful cartoons.
In one image we observe a child; this helps us understand the scale and dimensions of these playful creatures, which have become objects of admiration and obsession for adults.
Besides, who really doesn't want to forever stay in their inner child's imaginary world?
