Peter Bialobrzeski

Photographer Peter Bialobrzeski is known for his investigations of urban space. He became famous for book publications such as “Neon Tigers“ (2004), “Lost in Transition“ (2007) or “The Raw and the Cooked“ (2011). In recent years, Bialobrzeski worked on a long term project of photographic “City Diaries“. Seven have already been published. Here, Peter Bialobrzeski examines the question of whether the design of a picture of a city fed by prejudice, what has been found, and what has been conveyed by the media, can be transformed into a specific image. A seemingly objectifying aesthetic, paired with the coincidence of the flaneur, leads to photographs that subjectively map the urban space. On the occasion of the appearance of the “Athens Diary” Melanie Mühl wrote in the FAZ: “Everyone should see these photographs.” In their layout they are initially open, the viewer brings his knowledge and experience into the reception of the pictures. Pictures of Cairo can not be viewed without the Arab Spring, Athens not without the euro crisis and Wolfsburg not without VW and the exhaust gas scandal.

Robert Morat Gallery is showing photographs from all eight series as prints and as a book installations for the first time.

The publishing house The Velvet Cell (Taipei, Osaka, Berlin) has so far released: Cairo Diary, Athens Diary, Taipei Diary, Wolfsburg Diary, Kochi Diary, Beirut Diary and Zurich Diary. The eighth publication, Wuhan Diary, will be presented during the exhibition in December (details: see below). In preparation are: Osaka, Mumbai, Yangon, Bangkok, Hagen, Belfast, Budapest, Minsk and Georgetown.

Peter Bialobrzeski, born 1961 in Wolfsburg, holds a teaching position at the University of Arts in Bremen. He lives and works in Hamburg. His work has been widely exhibited and published and is found in major collections both private and public. In 2012 Peter Bialobrzeski was the recipient of the prestigious Dr.-Erich-Salomon-Award by the German Society of Photography (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Photographie).
