Maki Namekawa's portrait was taken during rehearsals in New York, and the portrait of Glass was taken during a sitting last year in Linz, Austria. It was an especial honour for me, as I have always been a great fan of Philip Glass and a huge admirer of Maki Namekawa, and am now looking forward to the upcoming premiere in New York.

NEW BOOK & EXHIBITION MUTTI - A CONCEPTIONAL WORK http://www.bitesnich.com/good-news/article/mutti-a-conceptional-work-book-exhibition/ Join us for the opening of my new exhibition MUTTI at the Lomography Embassy Vienna on the 14th October 7pm start. I will also be presenting a signed limited edition Mutti book (100 copies) to accompany the exhibition. Mutti - a conceptional workMemory is a strange thing. We tend to think of ourselves as cameras, recording events which we can truthfully and repeatedly recall without distortion. Yet each time we remember an event, a person, those memories become slowly and inevitably modified. Just as the cells in our bodies replicate to survive and grow, so our memories adapt, looking close to the original here and there, but altering enough to enable us to fit them comfortably into the myths of our individual lives. Our reality is a reproduction of a copy.If our own lives are already prone to this distortion, what remains of the dead? How much does our faith in the veracity of media interfere and reflect in this process? Photographs can assist in recalling, and even entirely replace, an actual memory, but like our memories they are also prone to the attritional effects of time. In reevaluating and rephotographing these images of my mother (originally taken by friends or other family members, as well as by myself), the process is emphasized and accelerated. This process, which is slow and often quite unintentional, allows us to create our own history, and yet with each replication of memory the reality behind it fades gradually away.

Mutti - a conceptional work

Memory is a strange thing. We tend to think of ourselves as cameras, recording events which we can truthfully and repeatedly recall without distortion. Yet each time we remember an event, a person, those memories become slowly and inevitably modified. Just as the cells in our bodies replicate to survive and grow, so our memories adapt, looking close to the original here and there, but altering enough to enable us to fit them comfortably into the myths of our individual lives. Our reality is a reproduction of a copy.

If our own lives are already prone to this distortion, what remains of the dead? How much does our faith in the veracity of media interfere and reflect in this process? Photographs can assist in recalling, and even entirely replace, an actual memory, but like our memories they are also prone to the attritional effects of time. 

In reevaluating and rephotographing these images of my mother (originally taken by friends or other family members, as well as by myself), the process is emphasized and accelerated. This process, which is slow and often quite unintentional, allows us to create our own history, and yet with each replication of memory the reality behind it fades gradually away. Just like life itself.

25 YEARS OF PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION http://www.bitesnich.com/good-news/article/25-years-of-photography-exhibition/ My latest exhibition '25 years of photography' opened last week at Vienna's Kunst Haus. The timing was significant, as it is exactly 10 years since my first exhibition there, and it coincided with my 50th birthday. Producing this second exhibition was an exciting project. The Kunst Haus Wien is a vast exhibition space, on two huge floors, but it was still a challenge editing 25 years of imagery, together with curator Andreas Hirsch.The response on the two opening nights was overwhelming, and made all the hard work worthwhile. Many thanks to everyone who helped make this exhibition such a rewarding experience. You can see pictures from the opening nights HERE. The exhibition runs through until 9th June 2014. ANDREAS H.

MARCEL HIRSCHER for SPORTMAGAZIN Austria http://www.bitesnich.com/good-news/article/marcel-hirscher-for-sportmagazin-austria/ After waiting for almost four months my pictures of Austrian Skiing star Marcel Hirscher are finally out. The production took place on a wonderful summer's day in August, the day before Marcel left Austria to train in South America. He was in top shape and it was great fun working with such a handsome and modest guy. Grab a copy of Austria's top sports mag Sportmagazin to see more. ]]> News Thu, 21 Nov 2013 09:01:00 +0100 PLACES & SPACES EXHIBITION IN DUBAI http://www.bitesnich.com/good-news/article/places-spaces-exhibition-in-dubai/ PLACES & SPACES exhibition at THE EMPTY QUARTER GALLERY in Dubai11th November - 12th December 2013 The opening night was great success, and we were even honoured by a visit from the crown prince of Dubai, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum and the Austrian Ambassador Mr. Mag.
