Taj Forer's Threefold Sun

Taj Forer's thoughtful project Threefold Sun explores individuals and communities that have found influence in the philosophies of Rudolf Steiner. I attended a Waldorf school for 9 years, so Forer's photographs spoke in a decidedly nostalgic and familiar way to me. The images themselves do not attempt to elucidate the theories set forth by Steiner; rather, they investigate the close and specific relationship that his followers have to the land. The straightforward compositions and subtle color palette mimic the simplicity of this unique way of life.
