Keep Calm by Heike Richter

Photographic Prints

Available to buy on…

Photo taken in 12/2012, looking down from a railway bridge at the ‘Werhahn’ Stop, Duesseldorf, Germany. The higher track doesn’t seem to be in use anymore as there is lots of rubbish on the track. ‘Verhaltet Euch ruhig’, means Keep Calm, where that came from or why it was written I don’t know.
With the colour change in darker red + vignette I wanted to emphasize the unpleasant feeling of big city dirty railway tracks.

I’m a 42 yr old Photographer from Germany, based in New Zealand.
I love shooting the beautiful New Zealand landscape, wildlife, macros and I like to have a play with all the fantastic post productions. I´ve always enjoyed art in general and my passion for paintings sometimes reflects in my photography as well.
I am a freelance contributor for Getty Images and some other Stock Photography Agencies and sell some of my work on New Zealand Trade Me.
