Dieuwertje Komen – Commonness

Dieuwertje Komen - Commonness

“For the series ‘Commonness’ I’ve portrayed the cities Bordeaux, Kosice, Mechelen, Plzen and Mons all European cities that aspire to the title of European Capital of Culture. The resulting pictures display a similarity between the different cities, a discovery both surprising and unsettling since the cities compete for the title with distinctive assets. And yet, here they are shown to be overwhelmingly homogenous.” – Dieuwertje Komen

Friday Quote: Cyrille Weiner

Posted by (PF) at 7:00 ...

“I am not so interested in the photography as document. In my projects I want to integrate emotion and personal experience. I am more interested in showing my experience of the things that I photograph than maintaining a detached documentary approach. The idea of poetic documents appeals to me.”

Fabian Lehmann – MyTblisi

Fabian Lehmann - MyTblisi

“In my series MyTblisi I show photographs, whose subjects are taken from reality. But nevertheless they are constructed and have a surreal appearance. The normal at the absurd and the absurd at the normal. Despite the absence of man, his presence is noticeable. So room turns into portrait and a relationship between man and environment gets visible.” – Fabian Lehmann

“I suppose part of me is running away from photography or maybe the things that photography is good at and I have been enjoying dancing around and trying to leap out of the technical boundaries that it offers.”
