Otmar Thormann – Ursprung

Photography as a vehicle for awareness, of coming to terms with one’s past.  “Ursprung” is Otmar Thormann’s powerful grappling with undesirable memories from his childhood.

“As a five-year-old I witnessed brutal scenes of slaughtering, but there was no-one I could talk to about them. Like knots on a piece of string I stored those images within me, images I could rarely make head nor tail of.”

Otmar Thormann is a Graz-born, Stockholm-based photographer. “Ursprung” also situates itself within the Austrian canon of art and literature exploring the nation’s dubious past.

“Ursprung” is about the desire to find closure and moving on. > MORE
