Kay von Aspern exhibition “Randnotizen”

Die Leica Galerie Wien zeigt ab dem 14. August Arbeiten des Wahl-Wiener Fotografen Kay von Aspern. Von Aspern ist ein Street Photographer im emphatischen Sinne: Die Kamera ist sein ständiger Begleiter. Seine Fotografien entspringen einer besonderen Sensibilität für die Exotik unseres Alltags. Was für gewöhnlich im Treiben der Städte verloren geht, weil es unterhalb der Schwelle der allgemeinen Aufmerksamkeit liegt, speichert von Aspern mit seiner Leica: große Dramen in Miniatur, skurrile Begegnungen, bedeutungsvolle Blicke. Es sind Momente, in denen der Alltag sich in einer zufälligen Komposition plötzlich verdichtet und über sich selbst hinaushebt, Momente, die von Aspern dem Strom der Zeit entreißt.

Kay von Aspern ist Teil einer vitalen Szene, die sich in den vergangenen Jahren in Wien gebildet und ganz der Street Photography verschrieben hat. Die Fotografinnen und Fotografen greifen damit ein Genre auf, das vor allem seit dem Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts, seit die Entwicklung der Kameratechnik eine gesteigerte Mobilität erlaubte, für einige der bleibenden Bilder und nachhaltigsten Mythen der Fotografiegeschichte verantwortlich ist. Henri Cartier-Bressons „moment décisif“, der entscheidende Augenblick einer Begebenheit, den es im Foto festzuhalten gilt, die Kamera als Verlängerung des Auges – das sind die Ideen, die das Wesen der Street Photography umreißen. Der Fotograf durchstreift als Flaneur den öffentlichen Raum der Stadt, taucht im Fluss der Passanten unter, bleibt aber immer wachsam für das Besondere im Alltäglichen. (more…)

Reister + von Aspern Round 2

Reister + Von Aspern

Kay von Aspern and Christian Reister’s joint project is heading for it’s next station – Vienna. Find all details on the Website of eigensinnig Schauraum für Mode und Fotografie and the Facebook event page.

Last copies of the book are also available online.

Reister + von Aspern project

Christian Reister and Kay von Aspern show special and very offbeat moments, encounters, discoveries and nuances of every day life from the capitals of Vienna and Berlin in a joint project. Originally inspired by Natalie Opocensky and Thorsten Strasas’ Wien | Berlin exhibition last year, Seconds2Real colleagues von Aspern and Reister create their very own version of the topic by mixing and mashing some of their best photographs from recent years in one show. This joint project it is not only an exhibition project, it’s a book project also.

Check the facebook event page for the Berlin show opening in just three weeks.

Opposed to the traditional strongholds of street photography like Paris, London or New York they are drawing attention to Berlin, Munich or Vienna. The long history of street photography is continued by the Seconds2Real photographers today with a contemporary view on public life.

Siegfried Hansen

Participating photographers are Alexander Magedler (Vienna), Andreas Stelter (Minden), Christian Reister (Berlin), Elisabeth Schuh (Vienna), Friedrich Schiller (Vienna), Guido Steenkamp (Berlin), Kay von Aspern (Vienna), Mario Cuic (Munic), Natalie Opocensky (Vienna), Siegfried Hansen (Hamburg) and Thorsten Strasas (Berlin).

Kay von Aspern featured on Lenscratch

When you think of Vienna, one doesn’t immediately think of quirky street photography, but Kay von Aspern has a gift for finding it. Born in Germany, now living in Vienna, Kay is a “Collector of Moments”.

A member of the German-Austrian street photographer collective seconds2real, Kay looks for those unique juxtapositions that can only be found with the heightened visual acuity that comes from split second observations.
