Go see: Philip-Lorca diCorcia

‘Now showing at  Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt is the first European survey of US photographer Philip-Lorca diCorcia. DiCorcia is one of the most important and influential contemporary photographers. His images oscillate between everyday elements and arrangements that are staged down to the smallest detail. In his works, seemingly realistic images that are taken with an ostensibly documentary eye are undermined by their highly elaborate orchestration. One of the primary issues that diCorcia addresses is the question of whether it is possible to depict reality, and this is what links his photographs, most of which he creates as series.’
