While searching for appropriate cover art for a new short story in my The Angel of Death series, I had the great luck of running into the Swiss photographer, Timm Suess. He shot his first photograph at the age of five. Now he travels the world over to record the battle between human creation and nature's destruction in what he calls urban decay photography. He visits abandoned factories, clinics, schools and ghost towns the world over. I found his Chernobyl Journal especially interesting. Poignant, powerful, emotional, distressing, moving, affecting - I run out of adjectives trying to describe his art. Timm Suess' work has been shown in exhibitions, public slide shows, magazines, film trailers and books. And now one of his photos, Grand Piano 7, will grace the cover of my new Kindleshort Piano Lessons. Lucky me!
I guess, similar to what Timm Suess is doing with photography, in my The Angel of Death series of short stories, I try to express in words my thoughts on death, redemption, hope, and above all love!
Piano Lessons will be published shortly on amazon.com. Timm Suess' stunning photography can be seen at his website http://timmsuess.com/
