He focuses on urban spaces, industrial landscapes and modern brand settings – with his perfectly composed photographs the young Slovakian photographer Branislav Kropilak manages to give everyday locations such as petrol stations, advertising hoardings or underground car parks an aesthetic presence. The effect of his use of extreme perspectives, brilliant colours and the highly precise staging of architectural geometries and repetitions is to reduce the feeling of space and to highlight the graphic, generally symmetrical photographic composition.

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.

The volume “Verkehrte Welt / Topsy-Turvy World” recently published by the Hatje Cantz Verlag shows the work of Frank Kunert and won Silver in Germany’s 2009 Photographic Book Awards.
