Overview participating exhibitions
For Nicolas Janowski, THE STATE OF THINGS is the account of a transition in his work and life. He wanted to liberate himself from prejudices, fears and mistakes from the past. In doing so, his camera not only functioned as a means to express himself, but also as a vehicle on his journey towards the release of this burden, to go through life lighter henceforth. Where in his documentary projects he attempted to be as true to what he saw as possible, in The State of Things he tried not to think about the images, but to feel them with his heart; resulting in images with a great narrative power flowing from the personal need of expression.
Nicolas Janowski (Argentina, 1980) studied Anthropology before dedicating himself to photography. His work has been published in Der Spiegel, Rolling Stone and on The New York Times Lens Blog, among others. Janowski lives and works in Buenos Aires, on his own projects and as a freelance photographer.
