Join exhibiting artist Elger Esser as he takes us on an artist-led tour of his solo exhibition Morgenland. Esser will discuss his new photographic series created during his travels in the Eastern countries of Lebanon, Egypt and Israel from 2004 to 2015. Their quiet and serene beauty is in stark contrast to what we know of the conflicts taking place in the Near East today and how they are generally portrayed in the media.
Elger Esser was born in Stuttgart in 1967 and spent his childhood in Rome. He now lives and works in Düsseldorf.
