"His photographic assaults stretch from il Colosseo and la Tour Eiffel to Times Square and the Golden Gate Bridge, and at this point very few major American or European Cities are innocent of his fracturing gaze. Richard Wendorf about Thomas Kellner I want to break manifold ways of perception to my audience. My main interests have always been in finding strong visual languages that are powerful enough to tell us something about their subjects that more "realistic" images cannot do. Right from the beginning of my studies, my basic interest was in experimental and conceptual photography. I created different pinhole series, photogram work and printings in alternative techniques, such as cyanotype, saltpaper and others. When Kodak Germany awarded me the Young Professionals Prize, I decided on a life in art and photography. In 1997, I finally started working on the contact sheet method to visually deconstruct architectural icons. My trademark style was born. Since then, I have been shooting prominent monuments all over the world. My images are asking to challenge usual perspectives – the buildings seem to be broken apart, dancing and remind us of the vulnerability of our values and creations. Thomas Kellner has shown his work in solo exhibitions in: Aarhus, Brasilia, Boston, Chicago, Cologne, Giessen, Hamburg, London, Los Angeles, Munich, New York, Portland, Siegen, Stuttgart, among others. His work has been shown in important group exhibitions, such as... "Madrid Oh Cielos!" Círculo de Bellas Artes, Madrid, Spain, curated by Luis Pereira, 2010 "A mind at play" The Art Institute of Chicago, USA, 2008 "Fantasy & Denial" Ffotogallery, Cardiff, Wales "Thought Provoking - Sense Provoking” Noorderlicht Gallery, Groningen, The Netherlands, 2007 "Pieced Together: Photo Montage from the Collection" The Art Institute of Chicago, 2004 "Ars & Archittetura 1900–2000" Genoa/Italy, 2004 "Vues d’architecture" Musée de Grenoble/France, 2002.
