Artist Phillip Kaminiak
Saint Tropez, France I 2016
This picture is also „stolen“ out of reality. We see the attempt of a tender touch, maybe hidden, maybe without intention, but definitely a human touch. In our minds and imagination this picture can lead any and everywhere.
Phillip Kaminiak’s photograph’s look is a mix of classical flash street photography of the 80ies to 90ies, with a slight sense of fashion or portrait photography. The use of flash, small rangefinder cameras, rather wide lenses, a physical closeness to his subjects and 35mm film gives the pictures something raw and glossy at the same time. This has a significant effect on the question you might have standing in front of many of his pictures: „Is it staged or is it documentary“?
