We are please to announce that our next exhibition will be by the Internationally renowned photographer Klaus Thymann. The show will celebrate his latest work for his first book, Hybrids....
Gay rodeo, underwater striptease, snow polo and a religious theme park. These are some of the strange and incongruous fringe cultures and phenomena explored in Hybrids.
The photographic book and exhibition catalogues the undiscovered areas on the cultural map from the techno hippies at Burning Man festival to a strangely seductive underground garden in Tokyo. This sociological documentation (shot from 2003 to 2007) celebrates the diversity and unconventionality of these hybrids while portraying an extraordinary range of contemporary individuals.
The vast majority of the photographs in Hybrids is original work produced exclusively for the book, which has taken shape through the author's travels and interactions with his subjects. Photographed in destinations such as Santiago de Chile, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Beijing, Miami, St. Moritz, Cape Town, and Amsterdam, this uncompromising and blunt collection is composed of shots from all over the globe. But despite their disparate origins, the subjects are all hybrids.
