From September 25, 2020 to March 31, 2021, the Iris BookCafe & Gallery in Cincinnati, Ohio, presents the showcase ‘Sight’ with works by Wolfgang Zurborn. The exhibition forms part of the Cincinnati FotoFocus Biennial 2020, which this year revolves around the phrase, ‘light&’.
Wolfgang Zurborn’s 21st-century colour photographs represent a significant alternative to the Dusseldorf School of photographic practice. The exhibition ‘Sight’ offers an overview of the German artist’s unique style, spanning from his book publication ‘Drift’ (2007) to the present day. “The particular quality of the photographic medium resides in its ability to engage in a dialogue with the outside world, and repeatedly question its own criteria of perception, in order to carry these over into an open-ended process – an experiment in seeing,” is how Zurborn explains his visual approach.
The freelance photographer teaches at universities and photography schools in Berlin, Braunschweig, Florence, and Liptovski Mikulas (Slovakia), among others. Together with Tina Schelhorn, he has been running the Lichtblick photo gallery in Cologne for the past twenty years.
