 About Artist

The works by Peter Bösenberg compress contradictory situations in our urban surroundings – the suggestive and underlying evocative guide his view. The artist does not only deal with obvious incidents on the surface, but is interested in what can develop from the hidden, under careful observation. Peter Bösenberg, who studied film at the academy for media in Cologne, stage-manages films and writes screenplays, thus transferring the narrative principle of cinematic succession into photography.
