Continuing the series Das unKraut, “What Remains” is a series that has been taken during winter 2018 and shows weeds at a time when their life cycle comes to an end or is about to start again.

Weeds today are colloquially referred to as plants that usually spread wildly and unintentionally in large numbers. Rarely enough do we concern ourselves with the possible benefits of these plants. Most of the time we don't like the fact that these plants conquer our garden, that they are prickly or sticky and we try to remove them.
The works “Das unKraut” and as well now "What Remains" attempt a pictorial approach to its essence and portrays at different times of year a number of these plants that are native to Switzerland. The sculptural way of depiction emphasizes the fragile beauty of these plants and takes away the UN-desired and UN-loved from the unKraut.

Klaus-Martin Gareis is an autodidactic photographer. In 2004 he started experimenting with analogue equipment and development procedures and over the years created his own work process including oil colour to create unique large scale works.
While the photography itself always stands for the beginning of a complex process towards and finished work, the main goal for each sujet is to find its own metaphorical language, emphasizing each photography uniquely.
Over several years KM has explored the so called alternative development processes for analogue photography. Several promising processes are hardly to manage any longer these days like some of the Bromoil Prints you find in the Objects section. The now settled procedure is based on Lith and Polychrom Developers used in a form to produce rather erroneous and chaotically results instead of exact and accurate prints. Using in some cases old and long expired photographic paper, the combination by itself results already in a kind of unpredictable print.

Con­tin­u­ing the series Das unKraut, “What Remains” is a series that has been tak­en dur­ing win­ter 2018 and shows weeds at a time when their life cycle comes to an end or is about to start again.

Weeds today are col­lo­qui­al­ly referred to as plants that usu­al­ly spread wild­ly and unin­ten­tion­al­ly in large num­bers. Rarely enough do we con­cern our­selves with the pos­si­ble ben­e­fits of these plants. Most of the time we don’t like the fact that these plants con­quer our gar­den, that they are prick­ly or sticky and we try to remove them.
The works “Das unKraut” and as well now “What Remains” attempt a pic­to­r­i­al approach to its essence and por­trays at dif­fer­ent times of year a num­ber of these plants that are native to Switzer­land. The sculp­tur­al way of depic­tion empha­sizes the frag­ile beau­ty of these plants and takes away the UN-desired and UN-loved from the unKraut.

Klaus-Mar­tin Gareis is an auto­di­dac­tic pho­tog­ra­ph­er. In 2004 he start­ed exper­i­ment­ing with ana­logue equip­ment and devel­op­ment pro­ce­dures and over the years cre­at­ed his own work process includ­ing oil colour to cre­ate unique large scale works.
While the pho­tog­ra­phy itself always stands for the begin­ning of a com­plex process towards and fin­ished work, the main goal for each sujet is to find its own metaphor­i­cal lan­guage, empha­siz­ing each pho­tog­ra­phy uniquely.
Over sev­er­al years KM has explored the so called alter­na­tive devel­op­ment process­es for ana­logue pho­tog­ra­phy. Sev­er­al promis­ing process­es are hard­ly to man­age any longer these days like some of the Bro­moil Prints you find in the Objects sec­tion. The now set­tled pro­ce­dure is based on Lith and Poly­chrom Devel­op­ers used in a form to pro­duce rather erro­neous and chaot­i­cal­ly results instead of exact and accu­rate prints. Using in some cas­es old and long expired pho­to­graph­ic paper, the com­bi­na­tion by itself results already in a kind of unpre­dictable print.
