This publication sees Katrin Korfmann and Jens Pfeifer place the composition and materialisation of cultural identity in focus. This feat is achieved by capturing the production sites of artisans from across the globe. By taking a bird’s-eye perspective, joined with anthropological interests, this series of photographs foretell the creativity that comes with human effort in the making, collecting and preserving of culture. Whether they are glassblowers, archaeologists, stonemasons or artists they’re all members of the same guild.
This is Back Stages: a series of twelve photographic works dedicated to the dynamic processes within the production of art and culture.
