In my photo series “ Wund[er]maI” I photographed an area of lignite extraction in east Germany called Braunkohle Revier Lausitz. It was the biggest lignite extraction place in whole Europe during the DDR times. Also today we are looking on hectares dry, moon - like landscapes. Since more than 100 years many villages disappeared, because of the exploration. Pitted, utilised landscape remind us about the domination of human being, the scale and kind of our activities on planet Earth.
