The »Out of Focus« series originated 2008 in the streets of New York City.

 

Since 9/11, it was my first long stay during which I had the opportunity to dive into this city. Even though I arrived without any particular expectations like so many times before, I was overwhelmed by the city's casual vitality, its noise, its energy and its restless, relentless striving. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

I was looking to capture my impressions through my medium, photography, in a way that would go far beyond mere visual fascination. I needed to find a way, to show more than the superficially visible. This was only possible by moving away from the usual. Most of the information which might help with consuming were omitted on purpose.

The thus newly found space must be filled by the viewer. »Out of Focus« asks viewers to use their senses.
