From July 19 to September 9, 2018, the GAF – Galerie für Fotografie in Hanover is presenting Moorland, an exhibition of works by Rüdiger Lubricht.
Rüdiger Lubricht can rightly be defined as the ultimate Teufelsmoor photographer, as he has been photographing this landscape in the northern part of Lower Saxony for about 30 years now.
The timelessness of Lubricht’s black and white moor landscapes is reminiscent of works by the great US landscape photographers, Ansel Adams and Edward Weston. The magic of the scenery in this area, where mist is a frequent visitor, also gives a typically German flavour to Lubricht’s images, even if overgrown railway tracks, lone telephone poles or an abandoned miniature locomotive, suggest the mood of an American western.
Located north of Bremen and covering around 500 square kilometres, Teufelsmoor, is among the largest moorlands in Germany. At the heart of the moor is Worpswede, an artist colony where Lubricht is also at home. Painters such as Heinrich Vogeler, Mackensen, Otto Modersohn, Paula Modersohn-Becker, and poets such as Rilke also worked here and were inspired by the very special atmosphere of this landscape.
