WHITE SANDS - As far as the eye can see
With the weather acting up more and more, even the deserts do not remain pristine. Thus the new, and perhaps last chapter of Julia Christe’s „White Sands“ bears the name „White Sands Beach“. Massive rainfalls in the fall of 2006 transformed spectacular dunes into a lake district, and Christe set forth to intrude into this new landscape as far as to leave behind most visitors of the national park. „Where the American can’t drive, he doesn’t go“, her experience taught her.
In this sense she chose the locations of her new works, that are completely staged, excluding passersby. Taken in this irresistible scenery, the pictures’ tension arises from the clash of precise conception, mapped by the photographer before, and the surprises awaiting her on scene.
