Hainich Forest

Research output: Non-textual formArtefact


Hainich Forest is a series of colour photo etchings depicting the remaining tank paths of a former military training ground in Germany. The forest was first occupied and destroyed by the Wehrmacht, later by Soviet military forces, and today it is a declared nature reserve. Photographed in different seasons between 2010-16, the images are etched in CMYK on four copper plates and printed on top of each other.

Hainich Forest was exhibited at the 2016 Print Awards, the centrepiece of the International Print Biennale and the showcase for the most exciting artists working in print right now from across the world. Following an international call for artists, this exhibition, taking place across three venues, presents the work of 31 artists chosen from over 780 entries.The international selection panel for 2016 Print Awards were Christiane Baumgartner, David Cleaton-Roberts and Sune Nordgren.
