Photography by Martin Klimas
Photographer Martin Klimas was born in 1971 in Lake of Konstanz, Germany. In his pictures Klimas breaks recognizable objects so they become something else, and stops us just at the moment of transformation. The aspect of destroying is not the most important one in his work. Let’s say it is a catalyst to unleash and study this transformation. The hardest part of his work is to smash so many figurines until he finds one that truly is showing him something new. He is in that sense a sculptor, but he has only a 5000th of a second to build his sculpture.
passive/aggressivness at it’s best
