Edgar Lissel


Contemporary German Photography


There really is only so much you can do photographically. Or maybe not. Just look at Edgar Lissel’s work. He uses a truck as a gigantic pinhole camera and has the image projected on colour negative paper (see above). And as if that wasn’t unusual enough he also produces photos using bacteria. Whenever I see work like this I am very happy that people are willing to experiment and to break the rules - how else do you get interesting photos that don’t look like what everybody else’s?
