The South Sea diary
Observing the sea people are fascinated by the wide open, its whims and it's sheer endless number of colors.
Roggenbauers diary of 24 pictures catches exactly those atmospheric colors of Tahiti, Tikehau, Rangiroa, Fakarava, Coock Island and Mangaia.
For sure a pure focus on the colors does not require sharp, brilliant pictures.
Details as revealed by regular photos would even distract from that key aspect.
Therefore he decided to emphasize his color-focus by imitating blurred aquarelles.
The reshaping of the sleepy lido at "Weiden am See" unsettled many locals & linked people as the former elementary restaurant had to make room for the modernized unit "dasFRITZ" which has direct access to the waterfront.
An intervention often criticized.
However was the transformation rally that profound or is it just the common excitement that comes along with any change before it's even called a great idea?
Get your own picture!
The goal of this project was to catch Zen with photographic means.
The challenge: Zen is neither an object nor something teachable.
It is never matter of conclusive reasons or considerations.
Therefore those pictures can only reflect the photographers personal perception of Zen & how he experiences it. But for sure he managed to evoke emotions like elevated peace, inner placidness and harmony.
Time and space blur & seem to be meaningless. Only objects bunch out like bounds of abstract concepts or imaginations influencing our daily acting. But there is nothing to achieve!
The Streets of London is a conceptual work & the result of an observation of the air activity in the "Nationalpark Neusiedler See - Seewinkel". Thousands of passengers are passing each day without taking a note of that wonderful UNESCO world heritage.
Mr. Roggenbauer was quiet interested of where those airliners are coming from & where the almost invisible motorways are leading to. As a consequence he had to equip himself with a flight radar application and determined all the movements.
It was quiet surprising that despite the fact that most of the pictures where taken on only one day a majority of the planes had London as their final destination.
Just after the last devastating earthquake in Nepal a friend of Roggenbauer organised a reliefconsinment for an orphanhouse in Kathmandu. Accompanying that shipment Roggenbauer found some time to take portraits for all the orphans & caregivers living there.
