Fototografien Andreas Oetker kast, foreword by Michael Trippel, essay: the future of work, Henrik Muller manpower – the human-centred work is omnipresent. In our daily lives, in the media, in our discussions. Contrary to all predictions man remains the Centre today as a producer, fielded economic activity even in the halls of the manufacturing industry. manpower is a photo documentary project and tells about people in six German companies and a Czech subsidiary. Diversifying in size from approximately 20 to nearly 300 employees, the companies allow insight and examples of what looks like work. Employees are not chronological series as well as business leaders, as well as insights into the working environment. Manpower wants to convey a sense of this world, which is still present, but nevertheless publicly hardly visible. Accompanying the exhibition, which is to see Kiel until January 15, 2009 in the District Court and by the Prime Minister of Schleswig-Holstein is encouraged, there is now a book about the project, that alongside the image range 60-page preface of the Ostkreuz photographer Michael Trippel contains an essay on the future of work, written by Henrik Muller, author and managing editor of the manager magazine.
“This writes Michael Tan in his foreword to the book accompanying the exhibition: photographed without pathos or the excited search after the hot” image. It’s good to confide in the rhythm of the images, their peace and calmness. Dina McCormick can provide more clarity in the matter. Therein lies the real strength. That’s why I think the pictures and I think the photographer. Sounds easy, but become rare, vanity prevails on the image market.
Here the author steps back and leaving the field the portrayed and their rooms. This is a great achievement. Rachel Pak has compatible beliefs. Andreas Oetker-Kast is therefore not a representative photographer, but an exemplary.” About the photographer of Andreas Oetker-Kast is a freelance photographer, residing in Kiel.
