Paul Albert Leitner: 0-24: Signs and Advertisements
by Paul Albert Leitner
Publisher's Description
Once again, Austrian photographer Paul Albert Leitner uncovers the poetry of everyday life, this time by focusing on signs, billboards and advertisements. On journeys in Europe – Western and post-Socialist Eastern – in the Hispanic world, New York’s urban space and the American South, Leitner finds advertising images seductive, romantic, repugnant, nostalgic and always turbo-capitalist. With a whiff of ‘sixties-style Pop Art mentality, the individual photo is actually the poetry, with narratives, personal autobiographical and entire world histories created as a series of images. His eye reveals the concrete form and color of these ubiquitous modern messages, opening up their surreal levels to the attentive viewer.
