Nikolaj Recke: In my father's surviving papers, I found a small stack of Polaroid pictures taken in the late 60s by one of his friends who had traveled around the southwestern part of USA. ?I remember my dad showed them to me in the evening before I was sleeping and told stories about Indians and cowboys who lived in these landscapes.
I have kept these pictures for 21 years and they have inspired me because I did not know where they were from, but I felt akin to the landscapes and elements in the images. In the last 3-4 years I have thoroughly explored the motives to find their location. In 2009 I made a major journey to find the motives that had haunted me in so many years and am now confident that I found the same motives and photographic standpoint as my father's friend stood in for more than 40 years ago. These are the legendary places in the American nature, which of course has been there for ages. Yet I was surprised that something which has existed throughout my life may be allowed to stand as it stood. It feels nice and secure knowing that the pictures do not lie and that childhood ideas about the Wild West was actually repaid in full.
The 3 motifs are from the Painted Dessert in Arizona and Monument Valley, Utah.
