3rd Place, 'Back to the Future' by Peter Franck
The individual works are alluring collages that demand and seduce our visual and art historical memory, create time jumps and explore new combinations of different genres. Everything is composition and photography is a means to arouse associations in the mind of the beholder and to establish connections with our cultural-historical socialization and its emergence. In this setting of the media, the pictures move along the border and the narrow ridge between photography and painting. The shown pictures tell stories. They show cityscapes and nature, seen through the spectacle of our cultural history. There are time leaps and the still-valid view of the architecture and landscape. In these pictures fragility and the task of protecting it are shown. Men are long gone but their stories are still alive.
