Biography: Roland Fischer (Saarbrücken, Germany, 1958) lives and works between Munich (Germany) and Beijing (China). Internationally recognized as one of the most outstanding German photographers today, he is one of the few who did not come from the Düsseldorf School, but has made an individual career. From his beginnings as a photojournalist to the present day, his work can be seen in museums and galleries all over the world.
Work: Transhistorical Places (Algier), 2018.
For the series Transhistorical Places (begun in 2018), Roland Fischer has taken photographs of Brutalist architecture and overlaid these with coloured planes and forms that recall Modernist paintings from twentieth-century Avantgarde art.
This reworking connects Transhistorical Places to New Architectures, a series of architectural photographs Fischer started in 2005 which is still in progress. It is an essential feature of Fischer’s architectural photographs that, through the reworking and recomposition of an image’s object, they reduce the photograph’s reference to the depicted structure while underscoring its pictorial nature.
