OTMAR THORMANN: URSPRUNG {Cover title: Otmar Thormann: Origins.} Fotohof edition, Salzburg, 2013. Band/Volume, 187. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 196 pp. with 83 ills. (24 col.). 27 x 21 cm. ISBN 9783902675873 Trilingual in Swedish, German and English.
Publisher's description: Otmar Thormann's latest work takes the form of an artist's book, its content personally selected from his archive of photographs and its stringent editing resulting in an immutable sequence. The spectrum ranges from early street photography of postwar Graz and Vienna to the Surrealist-influenced still lifes that begin in the early 1970s. On this personal quest for the origins of his interest in photography, Thormann links his classic photographs into an associative medley of images. References to photographic greats such as Josef Sudek, Hans Bellmer and Christer Stromholm come to mind when looking at the artist's long career. The images are complemented by eleven short stories by Thormann, which explore the strange incidents and events in his (photographic) life. Thormann's work is in the collection of major institutions worldwide, including LACMA.
