Brandl first came in contact with Kenya’s coast in 1997, in 2014 he moved more permanently to Africa. Upon his arrival in Diani Beach he felt overwhelmed by the sheer grandezza of the elements – land, sea, airs. The desire to paint arose just like the ability to abstract form from emotion.
After an experimental process, where he took hundreds of photographs, Brandl finally succeeded in capturing his desire on photographic paper by using photos of the three elements simultaneously. Just like a painter adds layers of colours to a canvas Brandl, too, layered photographic elements onto his (digital) photographic paper – thus keeping each element in limbo.
