Landscape Photography by Thomas Wrede

    Thomas Wrede

    Thomas Wrede is a German photographer. Wrede was born in Iserlohn-Letmathe. He studied art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Münste from 1985-1991, Germany, where he was also teaching years later. In 1991 he was the student of Dieter Appelt in Salzburg and Berlin.
    It is our relation to nature that interests Wrede: Our longing for nature and the medialized description thereof. With his camera he observes how artificial nature is received in the same way as real nature. This subject matter is well known in German philosophy. Philosophers such as Immanuel Kant and Friedrich Hegel studied the dialectic relation to nature. Wrede thereby continues this German tradition as a photographer, questioning our perception of nature.

    Thomas Wrede’s last series “Real landscapes” are manipulations of landscapes. By adding artificial details into real nature he creates a staged scene that looks authentic at first. For the observer it becomes difficult to see what is actually real and what is unreal. The resemblance to model construction kits is striking. In effect he creates dreamlike scenes of nature or perhaps even nightmares.
