About The Artwork

Since I produced the film "Lighter Than Orange-The Legacy of Dioxin in Vietnam"

 I returned to Vietnam as so often as iI could to study and photograph the country and people, culture and religion. The, the blind grandma of my friend Kim Dung, I met in Hoi An 2014. She was nearly 100 years old. Collectors Edition 1 + 1 Artist Proof, (sheet: H 23,4 x 16,5" 1 inch white margins, H 59,4 x 42 cm - DINA A2 2,5 cm weiße Ränder) printed, signed and numbered by the artist on silver gelatin print: With baryta paper, which has been a hit with photography aficionadas for more than 140 years, Ultra-white with a neutral image color, the paper is outstanding at combining brilliant white with intense black tones. This is also reflected in the high D-max value of up to 2.3. The shades of gray are nuanced, the contours extremely sharp. Thanks to the natural brilliance of the baryta coating, optical brighteners or laminations are no longer needed. This increases the silky paper's longevity by several decades and makes it the most durable photo paper in the world. At 315g/m², the paper is very heavy and stable. Due to the elaborate developing and rinsing process, the baryta paper will not exactly conform to millimeter-exact measurements. • The most durable photo paper • Baryta texture with a silky shimmer • Brilliant whites & deep blacks for perfect contrast 
Get in touch for other sizes or prints with border.

Matthias Leupold was born in 1959 in Berlin and lives and works in Berlin. He is professor of Photography at the University of Applied Sciences Europe Berlin. Since 2012 he has realized several documentaries in Vietnam, Lebanon, Albania and Switzerland. Artist Statement Staged photography is a tool to realize my artistic intentions. The technical medium photography allows to either fixate or transform past, present or already enunciated situations. Concerning that, my photography envelops many different historical aspects: the reflection of present happenings and the re-staging of historical references. Actors and models are placed in various landscapes or urban ex- and interiors, which I interpret to be "playgrounds" or stages for my photography. My inspiration is fed by the "outrageous occurence", the genius loci and by the observation of human interaction. Subject matters such as loneliness, vulnerability, injury and dissipation are taken on in tableaus or single photographs. The fundamentals of Leupold's artistic photographics works In his photographic series, Leupold investigates the manifestation and the social ties of various picture groups. "Appearance and being, realism and illusion become conceptually mixed up for the viewer. What should he believe? What is considered acceptable?" This quote by the german publicist Enno Kaufhold displays the diversity of Leupolds artistic creations, which are thematically tied to the german politcal system of the twentieth century. In particular, the differences between the social and art worlds of the GDR and the FRG.
