Up close and personal with Monica Belucci, Claudia Schiffer, Tyra Banks, Naomi, Carla Bruni & Co. Polaworld - the unretouched world of Bruno Bisang. On show in Cologne.

Parallel to the ART COLOGNE, the Kaune Gallery Cologne, Sudendorf will present unpublished originals by photographer Bruno Bisang from the last 30 years of his body of work. Featured on the pictures: Naomi Campbell, Carla Bruni, Tyra Banks, Monica Bellucci, Claudia Schiffer and many more (or less) lovely protagonists from the world of fame and glitter.

“I managed to amalgamate the perfect collection of nude, fashion, lingerie, glamour, portraits, celebrities, snapshots and backstage for my Polaworld book project, all of which is never-before-seen or published material from the last 30 years. I do not want to show perfectly retouched photographs, but rather the reality, honesty, imperfection and as such, the Polaroids have not been retouched at all, let alone manipulated or otherwise processed, all originals”, explains Bruno.

He adds: “The signs of life on the Polaroids’ frames, or fingerprints and other traces in the photographs themselves are form an entity and are parts of the whole picture and a living and breathing document of their time.

The aim is to showcase the photographer’s skill even without using digital retouching, because sadly, there are many overly retouched and artificial photographs out there. They might all be fine and dandy, but mostly without soul, life or authenticity. Therefore, go back to the roots!!!”

All Polaroids are available as originals and prints in a limited edition. A book of the same title will be published by teNeues Verlag just in time for the exhibition with 8,000 copies available from the get-go.
