21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Artistic

The image is part of the series Tar Trails. They show line-shaped repair work of asphalt cracks, from single motifs composed tar signs on the underground of the asphalt. On the familiar terrain of the ground appear textures and signs in the cracks of the surface – stored, enchanted, banned. Every street has its own micro climate, its own compound and thickness of the road surface, its own character of weathering and renovation. Each image shows the tar trails of one street in Munich, Germany.
