Project "Moor Huts“

For a long time I thought about whether I should publish my project "Moos-Hütten" somewhere. Because: If you put something on the Internet, there is a risk that the whole world also runs to these places....and the whole thing becomes an Instagram hotspot. My nightmare. On the other hand, I also like to share what's beautiful on our planet, and sometimes just around the corner.

So why a project called "Moor huts"? For years I have been photographing, among other things, the small hay and equipment sheds in the surrounding countryside between Bad Tölz and Garmisch-Partenkirchen. And if I haven't visited a place for half a year or a year and go there again, often something has changed. The hut has disappeared since the last storm, suddenly a whole yard has been built there, the shed has turned into a modern equipment hall, a cell phone tower is next door, in the background of the photo motif there are suddenly whole towns, gravel hills, and so on. In short, what you don't document right away may be history by the next time.

That's why I started to search more systematically for photogenic huts in the surrounding area and to visit them until I got a satisfying result for me. So the project remains a project. And very important: These huts exist everywhere in Upper Bavaria! I merely live close to the Loisach-Kochelsee moor and therefore have taken most of the pictures there.

A selection of my favorite huts you can find here (may be that every now and then a new photo is added):
