„Catch“
Artist Talk with Wolfgang Zurborn, photographer (Cologne, DE)

Wolfgang Zurborn, o.T., Leverkusen, aus dem Buch "Catch", 2005

The curiosity to experience, the search for communication, to long for images that tear us out of the routine consumption of normal media image clutter: images with irritating cutouts, surprising compositions and unusual perspectives.
Such an irritation is necessary to reflect upon what we encounter in everyday life. A more mysterious way of seeing evokes questioning of how to look and thus penetrate further into the various layers of the visible.
