Artist Peter Schlör (*1964) made a name for himself around the world with his unique style of black-and-white photography. Landscapes empty of people, deserted houses and towns: Schlör’s work is about archetypes such as the tree, the river, or the house, which have been timeless, meaningful symbols for human beings of all eras and all cultures. Marked by powerful compositional austerity and a strong contrast between light and dark, Schlör‘s images achieve a remarkable tension.Besides his individual photographs, Schlör has recently concentrated upon series in which he pursues a disturbing game with perception. The motif often appears the same, yet in fact, Schlör has altered his standpoint so subtly that it is often only apparent upon second glance.The volume, which features over 100 plates of duplex quality, is the first to provide an overview of Schlör’s work from 1986 to the present. Exhibition schedule: Kulturstiftung Schloss Agathenburg, July 8–August 20, 2006 · Städtische Galerie Iserlohn, March 23–April 29, 2007 · Kunstverein Grafschaft Bentheim, June 9–August 5, 2007 · Mannheimer Kunstverein, 2008 · Kunsthalle Erfurt, 2008 · Kunst Galerie Fürth, 2008
»Schlör is an experimental artist ... devoted on one hand to reality and nature, yet, on the other, searching these things for ‘signs,’ exaggerating them in his photographs.«
