The Greulich Gallery in Frankfurt am Main welcomes visitors to the opening of Maschera, an exhibition by Marc Peschke, on September 4, 2015 at 7pm. The exhibition will be on display up until September 6, 2015, and carries the same title as Peschke's new series, where he once again questions the relevance of the negative in the age of digital photography.
The computer darkroom
Peschke's new pictures are created in the computer darkroom, though he aims to preserve the secretive, alchemical appeal of old photographs. He is influenced by the history of avant-garde photography, the photographic experiments of the early 20th century, and the idea of subjective photography; but, above all, it is about the mysteriousness and lack of clarity of the situations revealed. In addition to the Maschera series, the exhibition includes selected pieces from Peschke's The Cubes series – illusionist six-cornered photo objects.
