Bending Reality

A retrospective of Luxembourgish photographer Romain Urhausen’s work celebrates his surrealist glance on life unfolding around him.

Prolific as a photographer in the 1950s to 70s, eclectic artist Romain Urhausen worked also as a sculptor, architect and designer. His photography covered a wide range of interests, applying a unique aesthetic to a variety of mundane subjects like factory work, street photography and daily life.

The high contrast of his black and white, the geometrization of visions coming from the natural world and a strong taste for the absurd shape the grammar of these very special photographs.

“In his Time” by Romain Urhausen is on view at the Espace van Gogh as part of
Arles Festival
until August 28. His monograph “Romain Urhausen” is published by
delpire & co
and available at the price of 42 Euro.
