Triennial of Photography Hamburg BREAKING POINT. June – September 2018

WALTER VORJOHANN - Things - Photographic Sculptures

02.06. – 08.09.2018

Sa./So. 15.00 - 18.00 Uhr,


The Frankfurt-based photographer Walter Vorjohann uses his camera to dissect profane everyday objects by detaching them from their contexts and staging them in large formats with extreme depth of field against a white background as if they were anatomical preparations. Electric cables, nylon tights, excavator shovels.Vorjohann’s objects stand for themselves. It is only through their purely physical charisma  - the tangible aura inscribed in them through their usage and function – that these objects can be approached.
