HATJE CANTZ

Michael Lange: Wald

Text by Wolfgang Denkel, Christoph Schaden.

This large-format monograph follows the tracks of German photographer Michael Lange (born 1953) as he wanders in the pathless underbrush of Germany’s vast deciduous and coniferous forests. Taken at dusk or twilight, his finely nuanced and atmospheric compositions convey an experience best characterized by the German Romantic term Waldeinsamkeit, or “woodland solitude.”
PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Conscientious Photography Magazine

Joerg Colberg

Germans have long had a long and deep fascination for the forest. Thus it would only seem natural (Germans might prefer the word “logical”) that a photographer would venture to photograph in the woods. As you can easily guess from the title, this is what you get in Michael Lange’s Wald.
Just like any primordial (or seemingly primordial) environment, the forest combines the sublime with the terrifying. Visiting it, being subjected to it, entering it makes you realize that you just went to a place at the edge of the world as you know it, and any wrong step will take you away. You don’t fully understand what that “away” might be, but you sense that it would probably not just end your life, it would annihilate you, it would swallow you whole, leaving absolutely nothing behind - not a sound, no bones, no remnants of clothes, just absolutely nothing. This feeling is as exhilarating as it is absolutely terrifying: You’d leave this world without a trace.
How do you photograph this? How can you photograph this? You don’t. You can’t. All you can hope for, I think, is to point your camera into some direction, make good pictures, and then hope for the best. Hope that people will find a bit of that excitement and terror when looking at the photographs. Which is, mind you, a pretty tough task. Lange has done this very well.
