250711: Galerie Michaela Stock Franz Wegner – Hong Kong – Moments of Silence

Galerie Michaela Stock Franz Wegner – Hong Kong – Moments of Silence 29.06.11 – 22.08.11 When silence tells stories Two chains, no, three. Behind them - somebody on his knees, bowing to mother earth. One has to glance at this twice, or even thrice. And then, magically, an Asian scenario develops. Someone praying in a temple. In Hong Kong. A captured moment of silence, Frank Wegner succeeded in doing so. The German photographer, famous for people and animals whose heads are not visible, erotic allured flowers, presents his “Street Photography” (the term is not really appropriate) at Michaela Stock’s gallery. A show called “Moments of Silence”, appropriate, because the pictures extract themselves from the Hong Kong hustle and bustle, less appropriate, because it deals with extremely eloquent moments. Moments that tell stories – when offerings and the pictures of deceased contrast in a shrine of life and death, or in black-white-grey and colour. Or when a boat on the water suddenly passes the fifth floor of a skyscraper – as a reflection. Frank Wegner has an eye for a special situation that not only exists, but goes beyond itself. Photo art without pretentions, but definitely art.
