„The serie 'Hidden Kingdom' consists of pictures from travels around European landscapes between 2006 -2016. On these journeys I often found myself in moments neither in the beginning of something nor in the end. Not even giving me an insight. Rather I found myself in the middle of something. And that was always the most important.” (Stefan BLADH).

"Travel is useful, it exercises the imagination. All the rest is disappointment and fatigue. Our journey is entirely imaginary. That is its strength. It goes from life to death. People, animals, cities, things, all are imagined. It’s a novel, just a fictitious narrative. Littré says so, and he’s never wrong. And besides, in the first place, anyone can do as much. You just have to close your eyes. It’s on the other side of life." (Louis-Ferdinand Celine, in: Journey to the End of the Night)

"'Hidden Kingdom' is a fictional journey through an inner and outer landscape of situations and encounters. The serie investigates a state of mind – the impermanence of everything and the human longing for something bigger to appear. 
'Hidden Kingdom' invites us on this impressive journey and the individual artistic cosmos of Stefan BLADH." (publisher's note)
