picturepeople #00 : introduction

PICTUREPEOPLE is an independent artistic (monthly) e-mail project by Rüdiger Heinze (writer) and Kristofer Paetau (visual artist) without any commercial purpose. It concentrates on the human representation in found amateur photography. The photographs become part of fictions - due to their re-contextualisation - and reveal different phenomena in human representation, interrogating mainly cultural and social issues, thus making connections to other fields of representation. The text accompanying each series of pictures serves as an introduction - hopefully leading to further reflexions.
