120 pp., 52 color illustrations, 9x11".
What do Martin Kippenberger, Mike Kelley, Paul McCarthy, John Baldessari, Wolfgang Tillmans, Isabella Rossellini, Larry Clark and Ennio Morricone have in common? They have all been candidly captured by the lens of Albrecht Fuchs. Here, published for the first time, we see the familiar subjects gazing at the viewer with open demeanor, at home in their environment. These are meticulously constructed images, both in terms of the use of light and color composition. His methodology of respectful distance and loving empathy leads to a strange tension in his photographs, underlying the quietude and equilibrium in the compositions. Photographer Albrecht Fuchs is famous for his color portraits, a field he has been working in for over ten years. His photographs have been displayed in numerous exhibitions in Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands. Essay by Mark von Schlegell.
