The FOTOHOF archive is showing an exhibition from the estate of Peter Dressler, providing an exciting encounter with the artist and his work. Most of the works on show are from his early work dating back to the 1970s. They include the portfolio entitled Eilboten / Courier; the image templates for the work Der brave Sohn / The Good Son; a maquette with original photographs for the artist's book Zwischenspiel / Interlude; drafts for the publication Wiental; and photo concertina folds and work materials for the film Sonderfahrt / Special Service.
 
The exhibition retraces the origins of the artist's oeuvre: the first examples of motifs that would later become so famous, featuring role models that go back to his childhood; his artist’s film Sonderfahrt / Special Service (jointly with Franz Zadrazil), which is available for viewing in digital form on an iPad; and the first sketches and drafts of his photo books. Indeed, an artist's archive provides an opportunity to contrast drafts, materials, and early ideas with the mature artwork.
