Photographs by Rolf Koppel.
Fotohof Editions, Austria, 2012. 98 pp., 78 black & white illustrations, 8½x9½".
German-born American photographer Rolf Koppel creates an artist’s book with his own technique of fusing traditional black and white photographs (shot on film) with photograms, to make a lyrical and personal fantastic voyage. Koppel, whose work has been shown at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and other venues throughout the United States and Europe, uses himself and his spouse, Will, as nude models for this work. He adds simple natural light and ordinary household objects for photograms. Basement Arcade is a journey of imaginative scenarios that also comments on the nature of photography and perception. While the work seems on one level to be the erotic musings of an individual, it also has a gripping universality.
