Krass Clement — Gentagelsens fest

Out of Stock

Series of photographs from the last heydays of the once very popular traditional Copenhagen 6 Days Bicycle Racing, the race and the audience. From the photographer’s website: “[Clement’s] photographic work emerges from two traditions: The Scandinavian melancholy on the one hand and the ‘flaneur’ tradition from the Parisian school on the other. In his photography Krass is more concerned with capturing a state of mind than with situations. They are less documentary depictions than subjective moods somewhere between spectator and reality. Insisting on an artistic integrity, Krass Clement has created a strong personal body of work with the photobook as his favourite medium”.
