The project Cuckoo Clock and Cherry Cake is a photographic examination of a specific german holiday area, the Black Forest.
A region that stands symbolically for pretty mountains, panorama views, picturesque villages – the perfect idyll. Here, the world seems to be still in order.
Cliché-ridden, everywhere you see attempts to be a postcard. A place in which traditions are firmly anchored.
In this project the aim was to shape a story about a region whose mysticism is apparently faded.
The tourism industry, by using this mysticism, became the major source of income. But tourism has been changing, towards more exotic experiences. Who needs this kind of perfect world anymore?
