“I don’t know much about my philosophy which is still being defined, but to tell the truth I don’t think it really needs to be defined. I mainly use the pinhole camera, a technique that I have used now for over 20 years. The cameras and hand holes are all made by me, this is one of the reasons why I decided to use this technique since it allows me to build my own visual space/photo space in full freedom and to use all the sensitive materials provided by polaroid and fuji, from photo paper to digital. I can also use long exposure times and see life and things from a different point of view, giving me time to think and understand better… The common theme of my photos is often the journey, where the photos can be used as a clipboard memory, hence on returning from my travels I can re-elaborate my ideas and seek common themes to link the images together.” Luca Baldassari

Hundreds of meters above the ground with a climbing harness, hanging out of an open helicopter, Zirwes composes his graphical abstracting photographs. His work shows patterns, structures, connections, boarders, uniformities and contrasts but also current political and sociocritical themes. The orthogonal view of his photographs reduces the space into two dimensions. Superficially the pictures don’t tell a story but allow an unemotional, aesthetical view on a ‘real-picture-graphicâ”. The content of the picture, through its abstract appearance, seems like an exemplary glance ‘ not really touchable but still exactly classifiable.

But as soon as you step closer to the picture the dots and lines begin to unscramble, they turn into humans, buildings and recognizable figure parts. More and more details like the character of the surface, people in the picture and the still existing traces of their actions can be discovered. The goal is to create an artificial over-reality, that increases the tension in terms of content as well as in terms of visuals. The viewer has to ask himself if the seen is reality or fiction.
