Finally... Photos from "Grains of Wrath"
After what feels like forever I've managed to take some decent photos of the artwork in my current solo show at Wilde Gallery in Berlin.
Let me say this: these pieces are a *major* pain in the ass to photograph, thanks to the combination of pitch blackness and low contrast. Everyone who is interested in these is strongly encouraged to have a look at the real thing. If I may quote freely from what I have heard at the opening: it's one of the rare occasions when the pieces look better in nature than in the photos.
The photos at the top are: IMG_5430 - John Wright, IMG_3997
So here's the first batch of new works:
IMG_1298 - Kreator 1
IMG_4517 - Irvine Alley
and here is a detail of the cop's face in IMG_3888:
I've posted the APs of these before, this is the new set of the Boxhagener Platz series.

In case anyone wants to know, most of the original photos were taken at minor clashes between police and protesters in Berlin in 2007 and 2009, the photo of John Wright is from a Nomeansno concert in Berlin in 2007, Kreator played here in 2009 and finally the Irvine shot was taken in the alley behind Irvine Contemporary in Washington D.C. in 2009.
