Transitoriness of beauty

A gate of ice - Antarctica melting away

Revenge of nature?

Moving to the end of the world....

About every taxi driver, i have met down here, came from the populated north of argentina. Why? Because tierra del fuego is such an empty and save place

Now they wait at the bus stop in the rain....

For how long....?
For now I know, that things go past and are never to be found again.......
I had a plan, but never finished it.......
The empire in my mind
The empire I never find
I had a plan, but....
That was where I ended

"The cat empire"

Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego Argentina, December 2007

The place, where to start to the last paradise of the world

Watch out and you will gonna see it.... HERE!

A place where rust forever sleeps

Living amongst car wrecks and garbage.....

Pto. Sta. Cruz, Patagonia, Argentina, 2008

"Mehr als alles andere hat meine Reise mich in der Ansicht bestaerkt, dass ein Ende unseres Wachstums die vordringlichste Aufgabe der Menschheit ist. Saemtliche globalen Krisen - von Nahrungs-, Energie und Resourcenverknappung ueber Klimawandel bis zu Fluechtlingsstroemen, Terror und Krieg - haengen davon ab."
Juergen Neffe, Darwin, das Abenteuer des Lebens

They never stop to come and anywhere....

Human influence at the end of the world......
