Olaf Otto Becker

Citat: Between 2003 and 2006 Olaf Otto Becker travelled almost 4000 km along the West Coast of Greenland on his own, in a small dingy. The sole purpose of his trip was to portray this coastal region with his 8 x 10 inch large format camera. Olaf Otto Becker reached the 75th Northern degree latitude of Melville Bay in his little boat. Similar to a 19th Century painter Becker portrayed the landscape, accentuating its silence, melancholy and the sublime of a land known only to few. Similar to an explorer, Becker’s work is pervaded by the desire to find that which lies beyond the merely visible outer layer.
