Andreas H. Bitesnich

Meiji Jingu Temple Tokyo Japan #7110, 2012

With his latest works, Andreas H. Bitesnich, the master of minutely detailed studio compositions proves that he is just as capable of capturing street scenes as he is of thoroughly arranged scenarios. We see the rawness of naked skin make way for the analogue roughness that blankets grey scenes of urban existence. These photos taken alone are already very surprising, almost surreal, yet their arrangement within the exhibition makes them even more bizarre. New observations surface, meaning is blurred. But as is often the case with street photography, and in life itself, observers can make their own conclusions. Does Bitesnich want to confront us with an apocalyptic nightmare or are the pictures proffered to us here a loving and poignant representation of humanity? The answer, it seems, is left for us to find.
