The large, square photographs by Markus Hoffmann directly depict nature. The circular formations are the result of the deposition of radioactive ores from all continents, causing a reaction with the photosensitive paper. The use of a primordial solar form in connection with today’s intensively used radioactive material creates a connection between primeval times and current environmental conditions. Markus Hoffman has been studying the phenomenon of radioactivity for years, and his field research takes him to the sites of nuclear interventions by humans.
