Roland Fischer

Written in an Image

Roland Fischer (*1958) is a conceptual photo artist who works in series and is active internationally. With his series of large-format works, he has been part of the photographic avant-garde since the 1980s. In his oeuvre, Fischer concentrates on two complexes of works: people and architecture. All of the conceptual series on these two themes are presented in the catalogue. Matter-of-fact, very precisely exposed faces are central to series such as Nuns and Monks, Los Angeles Portraits, and Chinese Pool Portraits. The artist deals with architecture amongst other topics in the work series Cathedrals, Alhambra, and New Architectures. What interests Roland Fischer, therefore, is not the documentary character of photography. His concentrated photo works of famous buildings and façades are pictorial creations with an autonomous character.
