Welschbillig Farm with Farmstead



brief description: 

farm with farmstead located in the hollow of a valley just outside of Welschbillig, a municipality in the Eifel region of western Germany. A farm track leads to the yard, which is nestled amongst fields and includes a historic farmhouse with a flaking façade and auxiliary buildings, such as the barn and the former pigsty. The overall impression is that of a deserted farmyard exuding a rather morbid charm: no animals, instead a discarded caravan, scattered parts of agricultural equipment and junk. The majestic wind turbines behind the farm make for a compelling visual contrast. Exterior shots only.
