Richard Rocholl explores photographic landscapes of traffic and transportation infrastructures. Revealing the friction between human intention and the actual features of the landscape he docu- ments the enduring symptoms of an ideology of sustained economic growth. His work has been shown in group and solo shows: “Schnitt durch”, at Galerie der HfbK, Hamburg (2008); “Fotomaschine” at Vorwerkstift, Hamburg (2007); and “display/entspielen” at Speicher am Katharinenberg, Stralsund (2004). Richard is currently working on his MFA at HfbK Hamburg although he lives and works in Berlin.
