Item description for Erik Steinbrecher: Gras by Erik Steinbrecher...
The sleeper is pure. Nothing touches this figure. It transports itself across its own space, its own time. The sleeper is always innocent. --John Miller, The Cave of Human Beings~Architect and photographer Erik Steinbrecher takes pictures of people as they lie and sleep on the lawns of big-city parks. From a safe distance he clandestinely takes his shots, creating highly ambivalent atmospheres held in taut suspension. On the one hand, he shows overwhelmingly vulnerable intimacy in public space; on the other, he creates urban landscapes of great calm and harmony, in which the human body seems for once close to nature, and at least for a moment, submerged in it.
