Joachim Richau - Transit 05-08

  • ex pose, editions 365
  • Hardcover, 2009

A series of pictures from the years 2005 to 2008, compiled from an incomparably larger fund of spontaneous recordings from this biographical upheaval phase. The title suggests that it is a transitional project, less the means of generating images than the altered vision of the artist. ... it is more and more direct in the digital images of transit: they appear more fresh and direct than before, almost "close to life", while death motifs appear in the same course and in changing disguise, not newly introduced by the photographer, but more clearly Positioned as in earlier work. It is as if they had presented themselves everywhere and bluntly, not threateningly, more conciliatory, and embedded in the aesthetics of life.
