Hundertwasser

Hundertwasser in Tub

8.5x11in Archival Print, $100 + Shipping

Shipping Destination

Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser is taking a bath in his makeshift tub in the native forest of New Zealand.

As a young photographer still living in Germany in 1978, I submitted my portfolio for an assignment to photograph Hundertwasser in New Zealand for a magazine story and a book project. Since I was competing with the legendary Ernst Haas and one of my idols at the time, Thomas Höpker, I did not expect to stand a chance – but I was chosen.

So I spent a couple of weeks with Hundertwasser at his huge, rugged and remote property in the Bay of Islands, an area on the northeast coast of the North Island of New Zealand. Hundertwasser had a wicked kind of humor. In order to get his permission to take this picture, I had to promise that I would bathe after him – without changing the water. Which I did – but it was definitely one of the shortest baths I ever took.

Friedensreich Regentag Dunkelbunt Hundertwasser (1928-2000), born Friedrich Stowasser, was a world renowned eccentric artist, architect and environmentalist. Concerned early on about the environment, he designed houses with grass roofs, undulating floors, and onion-shaped domes. In his art and architecture he used bright colors and organic forms, was fascinated by spirals, and considered straight lines as ‘immoral and godless’.

Chernobyl

Silent Nursery: Abandoned Kindergarten in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone

8.5x11in Archival Print, $100 + Shipping

Shipping Destination

Dolls and shreds of mattresses litter the floor of an abandoned kindergarten in Pripyat inside the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone in Ukraine.

On April 23, 1986 the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant blew up after operators botched a safety test. While the radioactive fallout started to spread over tens of thousands of square kilometers, on the day of the disaster children - oblivious to the nuclear catastrophe just 3 km away - napped in their cods and played on the floors in this kindergarten of Pripyat, the reactor’s company town. It took the authorities 36 hours to admit to the severity of the accident. Only then the children were hastily evacuated and had to leave everything behind – even their treasured dolls and toys.

The photograph was shot on assignment for National Geographic Magazine in 2005 and is a key image of my ongoing Chernobyl project. It was also published in my trilingual photo book “The Long Shadow of Chernobyl” (with an essay by Mikhail Gorbachev).

For this flash sale the photograph is printed on an archival 8.5x11 inch Legacy Platine paper with an actual image size of 6x9 inch. It is signed with an archival marker on the front border. Expensive large edition prints of this photograph are in private collections.
