Friday Quote: John Keats

Posted by PF at 6:02 ...

A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:
Its lovliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.

Endymion, John Keats (1795 – 1821)

Damian Zimmermann

Posted by PF at 6:12 ...

Damian Zimmermann’s photographic focus is on conceptual series and portrait photography.

His series “R45” combines portrait photography with landscapes and details. The title of the series “R45″ relates to code which classifies medical diagnoses. R45 stands for “symptoms relating to psychic moods” .

Worth seeing as well is Zimmermann’s book project “Trautes Heim” (cosy home), a collaboration with the photographer Nadine Preiss.
The book shows conditions of dissociation during the apartment liquidation of the widower Alois Rossa.

Damian Zimmermann, born in 1976, lives and works as journalist and photographer in Cologne.
