Absence of Subject

Absence of Subject: images of Michael Somorrof and August Sander is the work of photographer M. Somorrof based on pictures of legendary photographer August Sander.

''In each of August Sander's pictures Michael Somorrof has erased the subject retaining only the background. Through the use of software Somorrof has taken out what we have always beleived to be the essential element - the subject.
What Somorrof celebrates is to establish that post modern art isn't dislocated but something with roots, tradition and continuinity''.

Love, K.
