Horst Ademeit 01

Horst Ademeit (1937-2001, Germany). Untitled observation photos, worked over polaroids, 3 1/2 × 4 1/3 inches. All images courtesy of Galerie Susanne Zander, Cologne, Germany.

Discovered shortly before his death, Ademeit’s work is composed of photographs and annotations that tell the story of an individual undergoing an emotional crisis and attempting to establish a sense of order in a world that he considered to be chaotic. Obsessed with documenting the impact of what he believed to be harmful invisible rays capable of endangering life on Earth, the artist used a Polaroid camera to record his daily movements. The resulting photographs are accompanied by notes on the place, the situation, or the objects portrayed.
