Kilian Schönberger is a landscape photographer that roams the hills and forests of Central Europe in search for the perfect location. His goal? To find real life backdrops that could be the setting for the Brothers Grimm’s fairy tales!
“I think there is a deep longing for tranquil naturalness among people in our technology-driven environment”, Kilian is quoted, “Therefore I don’t want to show just portrayals of natural scenes – I want to create visually accessible places where the visitor can virtually put his mind at rest and make up his own stories. Possibly this is the real benefit of my work: Resting places for the eyes in a visually overstimulated world.”
Yeah brother, you know what, here’s something for ya, from storyteller to storyteller: respect.
We have just witnessed a location scouting skill that would have made Peter Jackson blush.
Kilian has recently published part two of the series that goes by the name ‘Grimm’s Wanderings’. We present both parts I (‘Grimm’s Homeland’) and II in the gallery below.
Witness Kilian Schönberger’s Brothers Grimm series.
