The publication Kapitulation is an intense view of the pictorial thought processes of the Leipzig photographer Steffen Junghans (*1963). Junghans sees himself as a photographer who finds phenomena with his camera, and stages them in such a way as to create precise, concise images. The serial production of these images is also an examination of complex ideas concerning diverse thematic areas. While the series Einrichten and Moderne Werkstätten emphasised the visual aspects of scientific models, the group of works Kapitulation brings to the fore both the stringency and the openness of Steffen Junghans’ viewpoint. In a new and independent way, his works investigate the potential of photography; its role as a medium of image creation that simultaneously represents reality and depicts reflection.
