Being a nature-lover and after having taken poppy-photos for some years, the idea was born to create poppy-portraits directly on the field with different backgrounds in imitation of the "Plein Air-Painting" of the 19th century. "Plein Air - Poppy-Photography" is composition on the field with different backgrounds for example: checkered imitating checkered fabric typically used on the countryside of austria for table-cloth or curtains, patterned in memory of the colourful wallpapers of the seventies of the 20th century in harmony with the colour of the poppy-flowers or in spectacular contrast to them.
