Pepperoni Books : Oliver Möst's Clackastigmat 6.0 or I spy with my little eye ....

Oliver Möst wears glasses. He is short-sighted, without his super strength lenses in front of his eyes, everything is a blur. Hence, he has an avid interest in the question of whether what he sees equals what other people see, with or without glasses. For this book, Oliver Möst photographed various series, everyday issues and specialties, some in the studio and others on location in cities and by the seaside. He presents nudes, still lifes with flowers, his father's trophy collection, equestrian statues from all over Europe, as well as beach huts and tourists.

For the pictures, the photographer adapted his AGFA CLACK, to match his very own specs with a strength of 6 diopter, preventing any notion of focus, foreground, centre, background – everything is a blur. What might once have been considered a carefully arranged floral still life, comes across as an irritation in this series. Try as we might, the pictures refuse to magically focus before our eyes.

25RECORDS, Berlin will exhibit his project until 19 August. From September onwards, Clackastigmat 6.0 will be shown in a solo show at the K4 gallery in Saarbrücken. A feature concerned with Möst's work will be aired in August on the Deutsche Welle TV channel.
