Oct 22, 2013 - Mirka Laura Severa

Gregor Schlatte is a photographer based in Graz (Austria). After finishing his study of »Business Education« he started to study photography at the »Academy of applied Photography« in Graz, where he was awarded with the »Most promising Award«. Gregor Schlatte works mostly on social relevant topics. The work »Kosovoska – Mitrovica« dealt with the reproduction of traumatic experiences in art. »Heteropia – Eisenerz« focused on identity-construction in a former industrial city in Styria, where most population has left. In the last project »kommun.Triest« he participated as curator/artist. The idea was to foster community-development in a difficult neighborhood in Graz (www.kommuntriest.at). www.gregorschlatte.at
