” I’ve chosen pictures that were never art photos. They were not styled ; snapshots. it was these banal photos, I was more interested in; to be not artificial. ”
Gerhard Richter

 

Thomas Brigger has accumulated a vaste collection of inspirational pictures. He took them during the last 15 years with different throwaway-, 35mm reflex-, various digital cameras and, of course, various smart phones. Today, besides being the basis of his work, these snapshots are questioning the diversity of “instagrammable” aesthetics, digital storytelling and the value of cellphone photography in general.
