The Great Belt was formed 8.000 years ago during a global sea level rise causing a transgression through the enigmatic Dana River Valley. Today it’s a minor obstacle on a journey across the Danish Archipelago due to one of the world’s largest suspension bridges. Quite impressive actually. But as a photographer I’m not devoted to sharing the awe and wonder of human creation. Unreflected and senseless representation is boring. I’m more in line with the quest of Minor White: “One should not only photograph things for what they are, but for what else they are”. Since suspension bridges and infrastructure in general are objects and signifiers of intriguing ambiguity, I find it quite easy to find inspiration in the veins and nerves of the Anthroposphere.
