Every week an artist whose single image was published by Der Greif is given a platform in which to blog about contemporary photography.

“Figures”

Aug 27, 2021 - Felix Schöppner

Memories are usually very personal recapses of earlier, sometimes long-gone days of a person. In the series “Figures” I compile pictures to personal memories from my early childhood to the present day. As a starting point for the image serve memories that I have in connection with a specific item. To move beyond the reproduction of memory or profane representations of objects, I place the objects in a new, different context. They are detached from their actual purpose as commodities and are thus seen as independent sculptures.
