ohn Oesch, a professional photographer based in Luxembourg, plays with his lenses like a painter with his colors. He carefully sets up extraordinary, impressive and even poetic scenes. His images are always staged with the greatest care and worked at down to the smallest detail.
The photographs presented as part of Emop will serve as witnesses to an event that made a lasting impression on us all in 2020: the lockdown.
Luxembourg city became a ghost town and the event made us aware of the impact made by Man on his environment, the marks he left, expressions of vain attempts in a certain sense.
The images are of an exceptional and striking beauty, poetic reflections of a fragile moment when everything changed, breaking point of our megalomaniacal certainties where Nature proves that she can always regain control.
