Last summer I made a photo series during two days in a dilapidated brewery in the town Oschersleben in Saschen-Anhalt province. Here the in former East Germany popular Germania beer was brewed until the production was stopped in 1995 and the building was abandoned.
When traveling around as a photographer this is one of my favorite subjects. The contrast between mysterious devices that are a prey of decay, half collapsed spaces and nature slowly but surely paving a way on and in between the debris and the rustleaved machines.
The photos are shot from a tripod with a wide angle lens and a 50 mm lens, both by Canon, and occasionally a strobe in combination with a diffuse flash umbrella.
