Wolfgang Zurborn
KARMA DRIVER
"The life in the streets of the Indian megacities New Delhi, Kolkata, Ahmedabad and Bangalore fascinated me. In all parts of the society I could see the traces of westernization and on the other side I could feel the deep routedness of the citizens in the traditional Indian culture. The vivid urban chaos full of crazy contradictions is showing the permanent competition between the different value systems. Billboards, advertising campaigns, film- and election posters, fashion images are mixed together with omnipresent god idols and historical symbols in the cityscape."

The lust for all this attractions in everyday situations is permanently forcing changes in social life. Indian Culture is influenced by the spiritual idea of Karma and this effects, that every single action in life is very important and has consequences. By taking photographs Wolfgang Zurborn was driven by this catchable tension, looking for all the normally overseen details and not illustrating distant ideologies. His respectful view on this overwhelming, mesmerizing and also sometimes irritating world is also meant as a statement of tolerance for different ways of life and religions.

Wolfgang Zurborn, *1956 in Ludwigshafen/Rhein, Germany; lives and works in Köln.

On 17th and 18th November there will be the workshop "the photobook" with Wolfgang Zurborn at FOTOHOF Salzburg.
