This month, the gallery is proud to present shows by 5 members and an ‘Off The Wall’ experience where the photos come off the wall and are bound between covers and worked into objects in this exhibit of works by gallery artists. Photography books of all sizes and styles sit next to objects never imagined for photography.
EXHIBITION DATES: November 8 – December 2, 2017
OPENING RECEPTION: Tuesday, November 7, 2017, from 6pm to 8pm. All are very welcome.
I started this series in summer 2006 during a two-month stay in Florence and continued it in my hometown Munich and in Berlin and other big cities.
I randomly asked people of these cities for a portrait. It was surprising how much intimacy could be gained during the short photo sessions.
I experimented with photographing people’s backs, which then became an inherent part of the project. By standing with their backs towards me, they had to give up some control. This somehow more vulnerable setting gave a glimpse of another aspect of their personality.
