Andreas Rod is a photographer / creative director/artist. He has been studying and freelancing for more than 10-15 years within the fields of art, photography, fashion, in NYC, Berlin, Oslo, and London. This way he has developed his original style with a metamodern narrative. “ This exhibition represents the collective image of a protagonist who is an indeterminate and unclear character. However, it would be strange to demand clarity from people at a time like ours, there is one thing that is certain: our hero is a strange individual and an eccentric figure. Some may deem that the strangeness and eccentricity are more likely to harm than deserve attention in a world of people who are desperately striving to identify particularities whilst searching for some common sense in the general muddle. A new question arises: eccentricity is detached and isolated, isn’t it? If you do not agree with this and think ‘No it is not’ or ‘Not always ‘, here begins our inspirational moment. Not only is the eccentric figure ‘Not always’ or ‘ No it is not’ related to the particularity and isolation, but on the contrary, it so happens that the eccentric one, perhaps, carries a core of the whole existence at some points, but the rest of the people, by some other kind of strangeness, at times are breaking away from it.” Andreas Rod What is the concept of the exhibition? Andreas Rod: – I am a professional portrait photographer mainly inspired by the rock and roll aesthetics of American portraiture moguls from Maripol, Nan Golding, to Mapplethorpe and Avedon. My passion is all about capturing the realness of the figurative story. It is about meeting rebels, right there, right now, having fun, touching the raw moment and daring to portrait it. And never look away.
