Martin Liebscher : A Man with Opportunities
Martin Liebscher's photographic universe is populated by only one person: Martin Liebscher. This artist's book takes the form of a giant leporello, fold bound in artificial crocodile leather. The strong horizontal format presents panoramic photographs in which Liebscher plays all the rolls, fills all the spaces - he is concerned only with himself. In "Liebscher is Liebscher", the title of the brilliantly written essay, Thomas Wagner points out: 'One Liebscher comes seldom alone.' In elaborately choreographed images, the artist pops up in the same picture up to 500 times: on a seemingly crowded beach, in a hectic stock exchange or in a camping place, he always meets himself - a first class photographic delight.
