Tobias Faisst challenges the observer to a play with associations. The photographer`s pictures
leave a lot of space for individual interpretations. His pictures do not have to be understood.
He allows the observer to fill his work with one’s own content. The photographs, however, always
follow a given structure: Graphic image buildup and color precision result in the general framework
of his creative work process. Topics of interest arise naturally through a very subjective view on
his surroundings. Connections between nature and staging, the overlap of reality and rendering, the
relation between man and machine – fields that Tobias Faisst cultivates at times in his artistic development.
Between the poles of art and design, close-ups of banality emerge, specifics that get lost in the wide-angle
of objectivity and only become visible in extreme detail. For the viewer reality blurs into a self-defined
sculpture. With intuition for materiality and composition Tobias Faisst prosaically reflects what gets
lost in life’s complexity and pathos.
