Tango Metropolis

Rolf Sachsse about the contact sheets of Thomas Kellner

By (author) Thomas Kellner


Full Description

For over two decades, German photographer Thomas Kellner (b.1966) has explored the pictorial possibilities of the contact sheet, drawing particular inspiration from cityscapes, architecture and landscapes. In his new series called Tango Metropolis, he focuses his camera on the world’s most famous monuments. These iconic buildings are well-known, but his deconstructed, fractured images invite the viewer to discover them anew. Rolf Sachsse, a photographer, author, and curator, has contributed an essay for this book that links Kellner’s work to both mannerism and cubism.
