When someone does a journey by Stefan Zimmermann

This is how a folk song by Matthias Claudius begins. What almost Alexander von Humboldt in 1799 and since then countless tourists have been driving to the island of Tenerife can only be circumscribed by desire and curiosity.

This also came over the photographer Stefan Zimmermann of these series of 21 infrared-stylized images. Tourist attractions, modern architecture and the surrounding sea serve as a point of departure.

From subjective alienation with surreal respectively super-real color effects up to reduction to the essentials, these pictures go beyond the usual imaginations of the contemplative holiday island.
