The River

Clouded as much by the subdued light as the camera lens, Donata Wenders’ The River (2006) is a photograph of the river stretching out towards the horizon appears as it would have done for generations past. As any signs of modernity that likely reside in the cityscape beyond are transformed, made timeless. Likened to an ‘en plein air’ landscape with a swell of deep water at its centre, Wenders’ image captures the tonality and idyllic atmosphere of this untempered landscape, as the river mirrors the sky, one above the other. All of the picture’s details appear to have been blurred into nuances of vegetation and uneven ground, either side of an undisturbed blanket of sea that runs like an artery through this unspecific landscape.
