Kolmanskop. The little ghost town in the midst of the Namib Desert. I can remember when I was 5 years old, my parents, my sisters and I went on Holiday to Lüderitz. We stopped over at Kolmanskop to have a look at this magical place which has a completely indescribable aura to it. It left such an impression on little me, that, when I was asked to take photos at the beautiful wedding of Natascha and Max in Lüderitz, I was overly excited to be able to visit Kolmanskop again. I was not sure if it would bring up the same feelings as it did back when I was a child or if it would create the same impressions it did so many years ago. But the minute I arrived it was there again: this eerie feeling, mixed with curiosity and wonderment on the details and thought that went into building, maintaining and living in a small settlement in the middle of nowhere 112 years ago. It were the little attributes and features that caught my eyes when I was 5 years old and 27 years later it was exactly those elements that struck my eyes again.
That is why I focused on the details in my photo series "Kolmanskop - Details Create the Big Picture", showing the abstract views of an abandoned little town that has so many stories to tell.
