More Info

With his photographs of telephone cables rigged in an otherwise pristine Vietnamese jungle, or utility poles and wires strung across Niigata's snowy landscape, Leipzig-based photographer Hans-Christian Schink (born 1961) has documented the clash between civilization and nature for over three decades, exerting a major influence on the German photographic scene. He first garnered attention for his series "Verkehrsprojekte Deutsche Einheit," for which he spent seven years documenting new traffic-related constructions in eastern Germany. Regardless of location, Schink's images bear testimony to humankind's brutal inscriptions upon the environment--damage to which they draw particular attention through the careful omission of human presence. Schink's avoidance of more overtly critical content only further intensifies the memorability of his photographs. This publication surveys the artist's work from 1980 to the present day.
