I follow rivers
Photographs by Göran Gnaudschun
In "I follow rivers" Göran Gnaudschun observes his own life in photographs. Though at first almost seemingly incidental, they quietly reach symbolic power. Gnaudschun is interested in self-questioning and transforming that process into images. Where do I stand? How did I arrive at this point in life? In what form is the past suspended in my present? Associative bands stretch across images and times. The project has to do with existence. In this highly subjective work, Gnaudschun repeatedly seeks to compare his inner world with the images of the outside world.
Göran Gnaudschun (*1971 in Potsdam) studied artistic photography and fine arts at the Academy of Fine Arts in Leipzig, with Timm Rautert from 1994 to 2003, received a scholarship from the German Academy Villa Massimo in Rome from 2016 to 2017 and the Brandenburg Art Prize in 2018. Since that time, he has taught at the Ostkreuzschule für Fotografie (Ostkreuz School of Photography) in Berlin.
