While working for a news agency there have been many occasions to look into the particular aesthetic of press photographs - especially in the summer slump.
Characterized by an involuntary and fragmentary aspect press photos often show stereotyped portraits of public figures being absorbed in thoughts or in the act of addressing their audience. Thereby the physiognomies ordinarily range from frozen gazes to visual acuity; the facial expressions vary from seriousness and gravity to thoughtfulness and inwardness.
Correspondently my drawings oscillate between the contradictory contexts of stereotyped images and individual characteristics.
