is a German photographer based in Berlin. He studied photography at Neue Schule für Fotografie in Berlin.
“Death, capital, transparency and simulation are all reflected in my work. Alone digital photography triggers an impulse in me to take photographs. It is a form of photography that is capable of producing prospective images. The question of the real referent of a photograph is thereby secondary. The question has become largely irrelevant in the digital age. The digital medium strives for optimisation and idealisation. It is hence more closely bound up with the mental dimension than any medium to date. That is why it exerts such fascination and is so ardently coveted.
Carousels are exposed and eccentric bodies. They imply sensation and daring, speed and commotion, intense participation and pleasure. In short, they are emotional merry-go-rounds, wholly oriented to the spectacle. Carousel architecture comes in a variety of shapes and designs yet its basic function is always the same. Its individual profiles vie for attention and strive to outdo one another. Photography makes it possible to assemble images of various carousels and set them in relation to one another. The triad of capital (the ticket office), circulation (the hub) and inclusion (the fairground setting)), creates the requisite space for the game of simulation.” — Daniel Sebastian Schaub
