I can’t wait

Artist Feature of Kai-Uwe Gundlach

"I can't wait" series

Hamburg 2019-2022

I am an impatient person. I need to be productive all the time.

In lockdown, I set out to stage small, simple still lifes in my studio.

A kind of "ready-made." I only ever took a maximum of 10 - 15 minutes for each picture.

I staged things that were lying around in the studio.

Or I just photographed things while walking the dog, which is what I usually do anyway.

That's not "street photography" - I call it "I am just looking".

The connections are always important to me. What does one do with the other? How do different ingredients combine? A + B = ?

The interplay of different elements is what makes it so appealing.

I am curious and excited about how the series will continue.

And I'm grateful that Der Greif is featuring my work.
