Japanese Photography and Art
What does it mean to live in cities today? This question is central to the photographic works of Pieter Hugo (*1976). The South African photo artist, who travelled through Africa while only in his early twenties – then still as a photo journalist for the New York Times and other publications – captures above all the corporeal presence of people in their respective, often conflict-ridden cultures. His urgent portraits come together to form a social tableau that depicts the current an… more
"Color is the visual key to understanding our social reality. That is precisely what I find interesting about the question of color – that artistic, social, scientific and also cultural aspects and components come together." – Hanno Otten

RINKO KAWAUCHI | QUOTE
“The sunset I see from the window of my home tonight is similar but different from what I saw yesterday. Every day is in a continuum of new days, each somehow different from the next. [...] Throughout the world, we are comrades who share grace, and share as well the challenges to overcome any number of difficult obstacles. Even if our paths never cross, we who exist now on the same Earth certainly share something, a shared time and a shared space.”
“Every age knows the limits of what can be said. To reach the limits of what can be said, one must intend to do it.” (Manfred Willmann)
In his artistic works, Manfred Willmann explores the outer limits of perception. His highly saturated colour photographs do not document the time and space in which they were created, but rather are an expression of the photo artist’s subjective observations. In its first exhibition of the Austrian artist’s work, Galerie Priska Pasquer i… more
