Title: ‘Into the Light’, Fine Art Photography by Anna Heimkreiter (Self-portrait, 2019)
Location: Oaxaca, Mexico
About the artwork: Back in 2017, I screenshotted a photo of this tree towering over some natural pools in Mexico and saved it on my phone – with little idea that two years later, I would actually make it there. When I first arrived to Hierve el Agua, I actually felt a little disappointed. It was crowded and not nearly as majestic as I had imagined.
But luckily, I had come with a tent to stay the night. And that’s when the magic unfolded. Often it is solitude and tranquility that makes me fall in love with a place… and late in the day, it finally arrived. By sunset, everyone had left. As the sun went down over the Oaxacan mountains, the scenery was just as beautiful as I had hoped. And without the many visitors of the day, I could finally connect with this wonderful tree, the mountains, the golden light.
I later edited the photo in a way that you cannot quite tell where the person ends and the tree begins – a symbol of oneness, the union of human and nature. I wish I could also show you how incredible the stars were that night, but you’ll simply have to take my word for it.
Visiting touristic places at unusual times of the day often unveils a special magic – and I’m so grateful that for a couple of hours, I had Hierve el Agua all to myself and could enjoy the silence, the majesty of its sunset, the stars and the peace of mind I found there.
