Originally In Non-Original Form with Thomas Albdorf

The Austrian photographer who shifts perceptions of inanimate objects, Thomas Albdorf, while wandering into urban outskirts.

In his 2012 photo collection Actualities Albdorf uses various objects as sculptures and stages them by color, contrast, and surroundings before he releases his shutter. At first Albdorf used only the rubble on streets until he experimented with objects in his own environment – showcasing the properties of (old and new) commodity through simple schemes.
