Otmar Thormann's exhibition entitled Origins features photographs from the early 60s to the late 90s, covering virtually the entire time span of his photographic oeuvre.
Also interspersed within the exhibition, but not showcased discretely, are photographs taken by his father, consisting mostly of snapshots of Otmar as a child. An unusual dimension in formal terms is thus added to the biographical retrospective of the artist Otmar Thormann, offering a new notion of the oeuvre.
On this (equally autobiographical) quest for the origins of his interest in photography, Otmar Thormann has delved deep into the strata of his oeuvre and his own persona, combining his classic photographs and his father's early family photos into an associative medley of images.
Otmar Thormann was born in Graz in 1944. He lives and works in Stockholm.
