PALMS. Visions of the good life. A dream, a hope, an escape from everyday life. With candles and ashtrays in the shape of palms or a glitter palm in an ice-cream sundae, we take a bit of it home—an admission that we dream a dream of great happiness, combined with a genial petty bourgeois mentality.

Thomas Bergner

Internalized Kami

How intensively do photographers examine their motifs? How much attention to they pay to individuals who view their pictures? The photographer Thomas Bergner (*1985) dedicates himself to this question in his book Internalized Kami. His works show a wide range of locations between heaven and earth, often at the fall of twilight or in darkness. Although his photographs look almost abstract, they nevertheless make reference to real locations and circumstances that the photographer would like to capture in his work. The publication Internalized Kami consequently focuses on the question of the relevance of individual photos in the digital world of today.
