Portraits of Constancy and Change

Christoph Soeder uses the portrait to describe the individual in the context of their community, often focussing on health related topics and music. Frequently he uses typological formats to illustrate his ideas.

For his talk at Beyond the Ring he will elaborate on the following three works:-

¬†Clear-Cut shows customers at the ‚ÄėAtlantic‚Äô barbershop in Newport/Wales.

Unfading shows women affected by alopecia, a hair loss disease affecting 1,7% of the UK’s population and causing complete or partial hair loss. The women in the photographs have taken off their wig, a few already years ago when they decided not to disguise their hair loss anymore, some for the first time in front of the camera.

Frame of Mind shows portraits made in cooperation with people, who experience mental health problems. A two-way mirror provides the platform for individual expression, sometimes in form of drawings or written words, which many of the participants use to objectify or also avoid disturbing thoughts. Emphasising the cooperation between photographer and photographed, the two-way mirror is the surface, where the viewpoints of both merge into one.

Trumpless

Dear Friends,

 

We have a dream of a TrumplessWorld

A world where new technologies and environmentally responsible industries are taking the lead of the market away from automotive, petroleum and pharmaceuticals.
A world in which we embrace business development that ensures that profits are distributed fairly.
A world in which no one is afraid or insecure because everyone has access to a basic income when jobs are lost.
A world in which social and non-profit organizations provide activity for unemployed and socially vulnerable people to help integrate.
A world in which people are nourished due to equality in sharing.
A world that is open to immigration and consistent with all citizens where it is natural to embrace the rules.

It is possible that this dream becomes true.
We need to support those who are committed to a trumpless world in politics, business and society.

Join in and take the first steps with us into a TrumplessWorld.

A project by Karenine Reber, Lo Breier, Tim Renner, Christoph Soeder
