Hiking break at Devils Walls, Germany

Hiking break at Devil's Wall. "Devil's Wall and the Harz region had always been an inspirational source for German poets and artists like Brothers Grimm or Caspar David Friedrich. My aim was to elaborate this natural topic with the medium of contemporary photography combined with that kind of certain romantic imagery of times past," says Koester.
