Andreas Meichsner August 18, 2008

Posted by Geoffrey Hiller in Holland.

From the series “Arcadia ” , Holland

Berlin based photographer Andreas Meichsner has graduated from the University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Hanover Germany in 2006. His latest freelance works mainly deal with the status and organization of leisure time in our society and its relationship to everyday life in our society. He works on commercial and editorial assignments. Meichsner has reached the finals of the Leica Oskar Barnack Award twice in 2005 and 2006 with projections at the Rencontres in Arles. His work Arcadia has won the second prize at the European Architectural Photography Award and was selected for the Fringe Festival Voices-Off in Arles.

About the Photograph:

“The series shows tourists socializing in Dutch vacation house parks. The peoples search for tasks in their spare time, are shown in contrast to the architectural appearence of the parks. The decision to choose a standardized copy of their everyday home, lined up a hundred times next to each other, as their vacartion destination seems absurd. Nevertheless, holiday house tourism enjoys a growing popularity in Holland.”
