In an era in which the digitally designed, virtual worlds of cinema, video games and advertising are commonplace and appear much more real than reality itself, the German artist Ralf Peters cleverly plays with our expectations of the medium of photography.
Ralf Peters, who was born in 1960 in Lüneburg, works with a wide range of different subjects, motifs and techniques. All of his works are based on observations and motifs from everyday life. Like a classical photographer, the artist finds his pictures through the close observation of his environment. Yet the motif is only a first step on the way to an image that is less a statement about reality, but much more a reflection on photography and its relationship to visible reality.
