Sean Hemmerle – Solitary Structures

 

Feroz Galerie is pleased to announce Sean Hemmerle: Solitary Structures, an exhibition of photographs presented simultaneously in the public spaces of Bonn and within our galerie space on Prinz-Albert Straße.
Sean Hemmerle photographs the everyday architecture in places of conflict and struggle, ranging from the Middle East to the Middle of America—he reveals the hidden signs of vitality and beauty found amidst the tensions. His work instantaneously captures moments of rise and decline; each impression balanced on the sharp edge of extinction.
For over ten years, Hemmerle has created distinctive pictures exposing the residual layers of life and living. Departing from the formal techniques employed in photographing architecture, he approaches each Solitary Structure with the direct language and intimacy of portrait photography. In multifaceted compositions Hemmerle extracts his subjects from their natural environments, drawing intense focus to the pure magnificent physicality of these man made constructions.
His portraits of the romantic neo-gothic palaces assembled in the archetypal factory towns of the American Rust Belt manifest the richness of the American dream, his pictures call attention to the light and life within the ruptures in the modern minimalist concrete fortresses in the Middle East as they wrestle for peace, and he depicts the unforgiving figures of fear remaining from the gripping wars of European capitals that have over time been quietly woven back into the fabric of the city.
Solitary Structures demonstrates Hemmerle’s athletic visual understanding of structure and place, each work is a visual argument for beauty, a display of time quietly unfolding and resonating with mystery.
