Working slowly and with methodical precision, Frank Kunert (born 1963) creates miniature stage settings which he then photographs with a large-format analog camera, producing magical images of "small worlds" that have been published in previous acclaimed volumes from Hatje Cantz such as Topsy-Turvy World (2008) and Wonderland (2013).
Kunert's works exist between the poles of slapstick and metaphysics. His new book Lifestyle presents 23 miniatures of these philosophically based stories of everyday life. Here, the ordinary quickly becomes absurd, tragedy veers into comedy and wit becomes ambiguous. The series is nominated for the International Felix Schoeller Photo Award 2017.
