Kehrer Publishers, Wolfgang Bellwinkel
Wolfgang Bellwinkel investigates something that might be described as a state of mind: the longing for otherness, for strangeness, and the restlessness of someone who seeks exceptional experiences, and perhaps knowledge, in far-away climes. The book contains photos from the last 18 years and own short stories, which function as autonomous companions of the photographic material. Private shots are interwoven with documentary images, world events with biographical interludes. The book demonstrates a deep commitment to biographically oriented photography, which its author places in the context of events taking place in a constantly changing, globalized world.
