In his photo series German photo artist Thomas Wrede juggles with real-life content versus constructedness in photography construed as a mirror of reality. His invented spaces start out as actual views of nature, landscapes, and cities, and are then taken to the threshold of absurdist surrealism and ambiguity. By adding and staging his images with little models, Wrede disturbs our perception of reality and the image.
Wrede creates in his photographic worlds room for longings and utopias located somewhere beyond time and space. This catalog covers two of the artist's outstanding photo series in recent years, Real Landscapes and Seascapes.
Thomas Wrede (born 1963) is based in Muenster, Germany, and has won numerous German photography awards. Art in America named his seascape photos a highlight of the 2004 Scope art fair in New York.
