Opening of the solo exhibition with the photographic works of Désirée von Trotha @ Bad Homburg, Germany. In the Sahara opposites are never far apart: here the peaceful valley with shepherds at the well and then, only a few kilometers away, a heavily armed drug convoy speeds across the sand. These are disconcerting parallel worlds. It is like straddling a line between the beauty of the images from the desert and the knowledge of all the conflicts in the region that are so difficult to solve. The struggle for survival with dignity seems so hopeless for many nomads at the present time.
Désirée von Trotha, @desireetrotha , born in 1961, studied photography and graphic design and later, film- directing at the HFF in Munich and at the Royal College of Art in London. Since 1991, she has been spending around six months each year in nomadic regions of the Sahara. In 2011, in the north of Mali Désirée von Trotha filmed her documentary “Woodstock in Timbuktu – The Art of Resistance“, which has received several awards and was shown in movie theaters as well as at international festivals. From her encounters with the inhabitants of the Sahara she has created several picture books and had exhibitions of her photographic works in Europe and Africa.
