Livre Ohio - Joachim Brohm Joachim Brohm was among the first of a younger generation of German photographers who discovered in color photography a new medium of self-expression.
At the end of the 1970s, serious artistic photography was still supposedly only made in black and white, despite major developments such as William Eggleston’s controversial 1976 show at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Brohm’s Ohio photographs were made in 1983 and 1984 whilst he was living in the state as a student and Fulbright scholar. His pictures show cluttered yards and houses and focus on apparently trivial and banal scenes of everyday American life. At the time such mundane quotidien scenarios were considered unworthy of a photograph. This, combined with his use of color photography, made the Ohio series a significant experiment in sea... Livre Ruhr - Joachim Brohm Joachim Brohm's photographic series Ruhr documents the German Ruhr area during its industrial decline from the late 1970s to the mid-80s. With this work Brohm became one of the first to engage with the issues raised by American photography – the landscape photography of the nineteenth century and the topographical photography from 1970 onwards – and transport them into a European context. Ruhr is an integral link between USA and European photography and its special significance is revealed with this first complete monograph.

L. Albin G... Exposition Exposition : Not a house by Joachim Brohm "Beck & Eggeling presents an exhibition of current works by Joachim Brohm on the occasion of the Duesseldorf Photo Weekend 2015. The exhibition 'Not a House' will show a number of new and single photographs. They do not relate to a particular thematic or serial context. The subjects of these photographs are buildings, places and objects which in time or space derive from different sources but which we often come across in everyday life. Brohm lends its own reflexive scope to the idiosyncratic combination of objects pictured in his photographs. Despite his objectiveness and accuracy in rendering, Brohm is able to expertly pose the question of effigy and reality within photography."... Exposition "Vernacular & Modern " by Joachim Brohm Joachim Brohm’s new solo exhibition at Grimaldi Gavin develops his ongoing concern with architectural structures and in particular with the relationship between architecture as an environment for recreation. This exhibition brings together and counterpoints a brand new body of work that explores the modernism of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe with Brohm’s series Typology, a study of vernacular German allotment buildings of the late 1970s.

... Exposition Arbeit/Labour - Set 7 from the collection and Archive of the Fotomuseum Winterthur We each relate to work in our own personal way. We may be employed or self employed; we may have just entered the workforce and have specific goals or we may be enjoying well-earned retirement. Working to earn a living is a salient feature of bourgeois society. It defines social status and belonging, while unemployment and not working bears the menace of being ostracized. From its earliest beginnings, photography has captured how, where and under what conditions people work – not only by in-house photographers, adhering to the perspective and specifications of the management but also by freelance photographers with an open-ended, unfiltered approach to places of production and trade. In both content and motif, the exhibition “Arbeit/Labour” traces the transition from physical labour to automa... Exposition Joachim Brohm and Heribert Ottersbach Culatra/Areal Brohm/Ottersbach - Culatra/Areal
The project Culatra/Areal was born out of an intense dialogue between two artists. When Joachim Brohm and Heribert Ottersbach first had the idea of collaborating in June 2007, they had known and appreciated each other's work for many years. Both were intrigued by a certain aspect of the other's oeuvre: Ottersbach by Brohm's Areal series of photogtaphs, Brohm by Ottersbach's Culatra paintings.
Brohm works in the great tradition of American photographers devoted to the art of documenting ordinary subject matter and urban landscapes. He was among the first in the late 1970's to introduce the genre of colour documentary to a European context. Ottersbach has made a name for himself among the younger generation of German painters by acknowledging and assimilating the innovations of modern...
