SPOTLIGHT: Jürgen Chill

Jürgen Chill‘s award-winning photography series “zellen” won the 1st prize of the European Architectural Photography Prize in 2007.  The images displaying prison cells of various penal institutions in Germany.

“Personal details from the life of prisoners, but everything without the individuals to which they belong. A dehumanised world which narrates the world of humans. They are suffocating photographs, despite the bird’s eye perspective. A hovering above things and at the same time the feeling of being entrapped.” – WDR, WestArt, Oktober 2008
