CONDITIONS BY ANDRES MARROQUIN WINKLEMAN//February 24, 2012 at 21:17 pm / BOOKS [International]Meier und Mueller

"Conditions", Andrés Marroquín Winkelmann from Meier und Müller on Vimeo.



At the age of 20, photographer Andrés Marroquín Winkelmann left his native Peru and the society he grew up in. Arriving in Berlin, he encountered socio-cultural patterns of behavior that were alien to him. Winkelmann noticed that in Berlin, borders had meanings of their own - they didn’t act as walls, made to prevent people from developing their own personality. On the contrary: It seemed as if people were actually striving to find borders. It was as if being different helped people to evoke their own identity. This is the background of "Conditions".

The book examines what it means to choose one’s own way of life. It portrays people who lead a free and independent life, and who have to learn how to cope with freedom, to find their own unique way. "Conditions" shows pictures of people who long to be socially accepted without having to conform, people who are “on the road”, searching, hoping and doubting.

The images are lyrical compositions that tell us about Winkelmann´s thoughts and personal experiences: they are more than simple reproductions of incidental events.

Adam Bartos served as editor for the book, an essay by Jörg Colberg reflects on what it means for a person to find her own place in a city like Berlin.

Μία πολύ ενδιαφέρουσα εκδοτική προσέγγιση της φωτογραφικής δουλειάς του Περουβιανού Andrés Marroquín Winkelmann που σε ηλικία 20 ετών άφησε την πατρίδα του για να μετακομίσει στο Βερολίνο. Εστιάζει το ενδιαφέρον του στα όρια που η ίδια η πόλη θέτει και στη μοναδικότητα που χαρακτηρίζει τον κόσμο που ζει μέσα σε αυτά.

Το βιβλίο εκδόθηκε το 2010 από τις γερμανικές εκδόσεις Meier und Mueller. Ο φωτογράφος Adam Bartos έκανε την επιλογή των εικόνων και την συγγραφή του εισαγωγικού κειμένου υπογράφει ο Jörg Colberg.
