A couple of weeks ago I have seen your photographs 'Touching Strangers' first time somewhere in the cultural part of a german newspapers homepage.
Since then I had to think about them very often. Here my results, which of course you know already by yourself, because you are the photographer:
- This series gives me an understanding what photography is for. They cannot be done with video or painting because the message is static and needs real life for its expression.
- It combines banality and utopia. The large distance between these two contradictions contains a lot of beauty.
- Normally, the function of art is to ask questions without giving answers, but your artwork seems to make a constructive proposal.
