MGA COLLECTION ARTIST
- Limited Signed copies -
Joachim Froese's first monograph was published in 2008 by the Queensland Centre for Photography in conjunction with a survey exhibition at the QUT Art Museum in Brisbane. Over the last 10 years Froese's work has concentrated on the photographic still life and he has developed a unique way to create photographic tableaux. These laboriously assembled constructs are inspired by art history as well as his personal story of migration. They seemingly defy reality and question the inherent nature of the photographic image as a reflection of the real.
This book covers his complete still life output from 1999 to 2008, including the series Rhopography, Species, Portrait of my mother, written in the past and Archive. The work is accompanied by critical essays by Timothy Morrell and Dr. Andrea Domesle, a foreword by gordon Craig as well as a conversation between Ian Friend and Joachim Froese.
