Peter Puklus

Intimacy - No Title

Peter Puklus is an example of a modern documentary author. Questions of an involved or not involved view, an approach based on revealing beauty, or rather importance of daily, even banal things – all that was solved by documentary photographers before. The generation of Puklus and his peers can now focus on the complexity of documentary work. For Peter Puklus, everything around can be a subject. A single picture or one medium is not enough to capture it, though. The Intimacy series contains several chapters systematically researching different aspects of this topic– a man as a source of the intimacy feeling, an inhabited interior, still-lifes as traces of living. However, this almost scientific approach does not stop here. Many of these photographs were made on the basis of drawings and are accompanied by videos with the same subject, from the same interiors, with the same characters. The whole series gains even deeper insight in the topic and literally one more dimension. (written by the Zuzana Lapitková, curator, Central European House of Photography, Bratislava, Slovakia.)
