Jan Wenzel


From the book of his work titled Fotofix:

Wenzel's workspace is one of those small booths found in shopping malls or on beachside boardwalks that people use to make candid, spur-of-the-moment photographs. He decorates the booth as a kitchen or a living room and crowds actors and models into the tiny space. From the standardized pictures the machine spits out, he creates collages of strange rooms complete with tiles and wallpaper, tables and chairs, lamps and pots. After each photo session Wenzel and his team redecorate the booth with new wallpaper and new furniture. This album presents a variety of different themes, such as interiors, flight, dead animals, the Pergamon Frieze, and many more.
