“The equivalent of a good, instrumental composition is minimal photography for me”
Alex Harbich is a photo artist from Hamburg/Germany who uses his work to process social and personal issues in long-term projects. His photography is characterized by a minimalist and conceptual approach. The city is extremely ambivalent to him, which is why his series Simplicity treats the contrasts of urban space: Thematically arranged diptychs show a beauty that can only be found there for him. Through content and title, the work is then juxtaposed with a critical context. The photographs are created through a slow process of conscious vision in different cities and at different times. The pairs of pictures arranged out of it thus show an ambivalent portrait of the urban living space.
