About the Work

This photograph was taken on a glorious day at the Tiergarten park in Berlin. Vogel was first and foremost a scientist who published numerous books on chemical emulsions, technical details and matters of perspective. Here he sought to capture the autumnal light created by the rays of sun coming through the branches. He deliberately shot facing the sun in such a way that the leaning tree on the right blocks the direct sunlight. The work belongs to a portfolio in which Vogel compiled ten views taken at the park.
