Billboards from the 50's until Today - Photos by Harold Chapman
March 1 - April 18, 2002 at OMC Gallery for Contemporary Art Duesseldorf will
Mostly photographed in London and Paris, they images have been interpreted like stage elements or backdrops for the changing protagonists in the focus of the lens of the English Photographer Harold Chapman.
The documentary quality of these images is becoming unique by those humorous, bizarre and even surreal accents, which Chapman points out and keeps so masterfully.
Becoming renown by his photo serial about the 'Beat Hotel' in Paris, Chapman proves with this oeuvre that he belongs to the top of his kind.
