Aindreas Scholz London, United Kingdom
  Back to profiles

Since 2017, Scholz has focused his artmaking on environments that have been affected by human activity, encompassing landscapes affected by, for example, war, pollution, and the climate crisis. Simultaneously, he is exploring and experimenting with alternative and sustainable photographic printing practices and processes, to highlight the need to critically reflect on our daily carbon footprint.

Using 19th-century photographic techniques, I aim to innovate in terms of sustainable photographic printing practices and processes considering the emerging climate crisis and to push technical, creative as well as conceptual boundaries. I create images in response to specific sites and my emerging practice concerns the connections between humans, non-humans, nature, and the wider environment.

I investigate processes of deep time in terms of geology; and immediate impulses caused by adverse weather phenomena and a warming climate. Recording change is crucial to my practice and I try to make that evident in all my images.

I work in collaboration with the elements at each site, whether sea water, rain, or plant specimens. Sunlight, silt, and soil help me create an inner world that connects to my viewers. I like my work to stimulate conversations that I engage with, and that enable me to develop as an individual.
