Dont Fade to Grey
In his new book Olaf Unverzart creates pictures that ask questions that are both subtle and sometimes melancholy. His coarsegrained black-and-white photographs, taken with analogue cameras, evoke associations on the one hand of a transience, but at the same time of an openness that involves narration. His motifs suggest things, but they avoid a presentation that is overtly explanatory. Influenced by great names of photographic history, such as Robert Frank, Garry Winogrand or Anders Petersen, wanders leisurely through the world with his camera, always using the medium as a mirror to himself as well.
