Something is wrong. The small town idyll by Frank Kunert

Something is wrong. The small town idyll by Frank Kunert

It’s not until we take a closer look at his photographs that we recognise their irony and subversive nature. Frank Kunert manipulates scenes whose content appears to be familiar to us, disrupting the typical suburban idyll by minor but effective distortions. He describes the constant theme of his work as ‘our longing for security and our fear of loss and transience.’

Frank Kunert ignores current trends and does without the possibilities offered by digital photography, instead spending weeks and even months creating detailed model settings made of deco boards, plasticine and paint.
