press release

This personal selection of photographs by Gerhard Stromberg begins with the idea that photography is now in the position painting was with the invention of photography. We now look at pictures and it does not matter if it is a photograph or a painting. Memory and place are part of the reasons a photograph matters. The photograph is directly connected with the life of the artist and of the photographer.

Gerhard Stromberg has been living in England since 1986. He studied with Bernd Becher and Nam June Paik at Düsseldorf Academy. He is currently a visiting lecturer at Exeter School of Art and Harvard University. He had a successful exhibition of his photographs at Entwistle, London in July 1999, and will be showing work at Berlin Kunstforum and in New York City.
