pomo homo – apple human
Currently for more than nine years, the freelance artist has been working on his long-term project “pomo homo – apple man”, which deals with the nature of an apple in various expressive forms. One main focus is the portrait series of ripe, overripe, rotten and injured apples. In most cases these pictures are taken on old orchards, along roadsides and in gardens. He is always on search for new models and motifs. Especially in late summer and autumn many of the shots were taken. In this exhibition a selection of as yet unpublished pictures from the last three years of the project is presented.
