Admittedly there are only rare occasions where conceptual photography does really work for me. All too often it leaves a fade taste in my mouth, I find it less interesting as the concept so much overshadows the images themselves. But this is not always the case, and I do well remember my fascination from probably 20 years ago for the images of John Pfahl – the link is to google images, which may serve as a start. I only recently ordered a copy of Pfahl’s “Altered Landscapes” to learn a bit more about his work.
And Scott Hocking‘s images shown in the Biennale last year also resonated with my feeling for images, and as I started a bit to understand his way of seeing and transferring, I just thought it might be interesting to some of you, too.
