Die Blinden

Oliver Sieber
Artists' Books
26.5 × 22.5 × 1 cm

Sieber’s work often portrays different subcultures in society where the symbolic importance of certain style codes and certain forms of uniformity play an important part in group identity.

In the series, “Die Blinden“ I was interested in the concepts of “being able to see“ and “being blind“ and their relation to the photographic portrait in general. The form

of the passport photo as a token of identity has always irritated me as in respect to the blind. For these people my work is completely insignificant. That is an interesting point for me,..and for photography.” -Oliver Sieber

Includes a text in German by Kerstin Stremmel. Signed.
