MAX KLING is a Frankfurt based street photographer. He depicts scenes and moments that one could see every day, yet rarely does. The focus is on Frankfurt. But elsewhere is his playground too.
Black and white photographs from MAX KLING succeed in taking the ordinary and reducing it to its essence: light and shadow, contrasts and structures, people and the traces they leave.
None of the pictures is staged. Pictures simply come into being – situationally, spontaneously and right at the heart of life. At any time, in any weather, at night and day. Always.
Motifs and situations present themselves when the photographer allows himself to be subsumed by their surroundings, and are usually encountered when they are least expected. Fleeting finds from everyday life. Recognizing and capturing these is what it’s all about.
