'Prächtig' offers an insight into the artists's work with 96 plates covering his portraits and still life photographs.

 

The Austrian photographer's glossy, large-scale photographs evoke the compositions of traditional still life and portrait painting. His subjects are suffused with all of the sensuous opulence of a Caravaggio and decked out in the trappings of modern absurdity. From paperclips and piercings to spaghetti wigs and cardboard flamingoes, his works are both bizarre and beatific.
