Erik van der Weijde Der Baum

“Inspired in part by a German photography book from 1931 with the same title, ‘Der Baum’ features 44 photographs of trees taken by Van der Weijde in recent years. The tree’s locations range from historical sites like Hitler’s elementary school and the scenes of famous crimes, to unidentified places that give rise to oblique atmospheres and titles such as ‘School’, ‘Road’ and ‘Park’. As in his other publications, Van der Weijde deals in typological representations that explore the photo book itself as an object.”
