Lenz is very happy to be showcasing Niklas's latest series "Lumionous" which explores the Solitary world of the night-time in Leadville, Colorado.
"I link my work with solitude both on personal level being that I’m almost always alone whilst taking photos and feeling alone at times in life and in what I capture visually. When making photos I am usually drawn to subjects that seem alone or situations where there is a lack of human presence. For me I feel differentiating between solitude and loneliness is not easy. I believe solitude is the state of being alone without being lonely whereas loneliness is a state marked by isolation. Even though there is this distinction I find it difficult to know where one ends and the other begins. In a way, I find myself drawn exploring that ‘grey-zone’ between the two terms with my photography."
