Erwin Polanc Documents The Pursuit Of Happiness

Scroll

Living and working in Graz, Austria, photographer Erwin Polanc captures everyday scenes in a rural environment for his latest series ‘The Pursuit Of Happiness‘.

In soothing color tones, Polanc’s clean images depict mundane objects and local residents. By zooming in on the details that make up everyday life, the series seems to capture both specific moments as well as an overall sense of longing.

A description about the series states: “Hannah Arendt says, all human actions are attempts to oppose mortality. Those actions traced in Erwin Polanc’s clear compositions depict life as transitory, as perchance attempts that result in irritating contrasts.”
