Nod – East of eden

Labyrinth at the motorway, Castrop-Rauxel, Germany 2013
Nod – East of eden, photo essay by Jörg Meier
[W]hen expelled by God, Kain went to the Land of Nod, east of Eden (Genesis 4:16). Nod stems from nad: restless, wandering. This is a portrait of a parallel universe of those that withdraw from the public, yet expose themselves and yield to their desires on rest stops and parking areas.
Each gout finds its match when wandering in fading light, almost invisibly, fleetingly, offside but still right in the middle of it.

Q&A with Jörg Meier

Photography is…
… my key to the world. I can deal with people and get involved in situations that have nothing to do with my live, but still touches me. It is a great adventure to earn attention, ‘learn a language’ and trust people and see how people learn to put trust into you. In the end I can worship people and have a better understanding for their situation. At that point I try to take pictures from the inside to the outside.

Photography and writing…
… words live. Nothing can touch you like spoken words. Writing is generating images without photography. It can also build a frame to photography, a bridge between pictures or an offer to get inside.

Who left the biggest impression on you?
There is a lot of people for my socialization. There are actors, directors, writers, politicians and musicians. Talking of classic photography there are Denis Dailleux and Paul Strand. The new photographers which really touch me are Jonas Bendiksen, Hannah Modigh and Martin Bogren.

Tell us a little about yourself
I studied a lot of things, worked as writer, DJ and became a photographer late in live. I work as an art director for an annual publication in Germany and live on a farm with my family. I constantly work on something.
