TRAUMMÄNNER

50 STARFOTOGRAFEN ZEIGEN IHRE VISION VOM IDEAL

MARCH 11 – May 22, 2011 AT THE HOUSE OF PHOTOGRAPHY
EXTENDED UNTIL MAY, 29!

 

Particularly in recent years, society´s image of the male has undergone major changes. From the Adonis with six pack abs and the metrosexual male up to and including the self-confident, dynamic success type personality whose decisions are nevertheless motivated by passion. The world´s top fashion photographers have played a decisive role in shaping this evolution. What is the inspiring force behind the (idealised) iconographical image of the zeitgeist? What develops beyond the requirements of the market place, what develops ´on its own´?The project gathers the international elite of fashion and portrait photography for the first time, providing it with a creative artistic framework. It shows men from various perspectives, strong, weak, sexy - modern men who reflect more than the social ideal, enabling something from the substance of their being to emerge.The exhibition TRAUMMÄNNER is the follow-up project to TRAUMFRAUEN which was presented in 2008 at the Deichtorhallen.
