Wild Emperor

teNeues Publishing | 2005

A series of panoramic photographs were taken of an alpine view from the balcony of a mountain lodge called the Rechenau, near Kiefersfelden in Bavaria. Maryam and Rolf Sachs focused the camera on two majestic mountain peaks, ‘Der Zahme Kaiser’ (The Tame Emperor) on the left and ‘Der Wilde Kaiser’ (The Wild Emperor) on the right, that lie over the German border in Austria. The discipline for the project was rigorous; the camera, which was housed in a purpose built shelter, shot over 50,000 photographs throughout 2004 , one shot taken every 10 and half minutes. The pictures succeed in capturing the ever changing moods of nature.
