Combining analogue photography with digital editing techniques, Florian Aichen-Maier revives an intrigue of technology and metaphysics; the effects of his process reveal ‘unseen truths’ or a sense of mysticism about his represented images. In Untitled, Maier-Aichen’s snow-scape exudes an eerie loneliness, encapsulating the deafening stillness of a winter’s night in its cool blue tint and greeting card romanticism. The unlikely presence of a street lamp amidst the trees gives strange illumination to the falling snow, giving an unsettling suburban presence to the desolate scene.
