photographs become pictures become drawings.

a couple of weeks ago i was visiting the exhibition “fotografien werden bilder. die becher-klasse” at the städel museum in frankfurt. the exhibition shows photos by the first (and by now famous and acclaimed) students of bernd and hiller becher. it is a brilliant exhibition that i can only recommend (still going until august, 13th 2017).

i took a closer look at the photos i liked most by sketching them:

Gekritzel9_nach tata ronkholz: st. franziskusstr. 107 (düsseldorf), 1977/78.

Gekritzel8_nach thomas ruff: interieur 1d, 1982.

Gekritzel5_nach jörg sasse: 28246, 2000.

Gekritzel3_knach andreas gursky: teneriffa, schwimmbad, 1987.

a nice guard at the exhibition was interested in what i was doing and asked me for a look at all of my drawings when i was done. he seemed to be impressed, but not so much by the drawings but by my cheap biro: “hm… it’s hard with that pen… you can’t erase and correct things…”

tumblr_op2pqcgbFS1shaph2o3_1280whatever. if you mess with the penguin, you’ve got a problem with a lion and an eagle on your hand, my friend!
