Jochen Lempert – Composition
Reading copy available in our library.
330 x 230 mm, 56 pages
Buchhandlung Walther König
Over the past two decades, Jochen Lempert has drawn from his personal archive of hundreds of images to create photographic installations that immerse the viewer in a field of poetic visual associations. Lempert’s images of the natural world – ocean waves, plants, birds, insects, reptiles, seashells, and taxidermied specimens from natural history museums – are made through a variety of experimental and traditional processes that, to a certain extent, mimic the inherent order and randomness of the natural world itself.
While some of his photographs are taken with a 35mm camera from scientific research vessels in the North Sea or in the urban environment of his hometown of Hamburg, Germany, many are made through camera-less processes. He creates photograms by lying natural specimens directly on photographic paper.
Published retrospectively after Jochen Lempert’s major survey exhibition at Midway Contemporary Art, Minneapolis, 3 February – 31 March 2012.
