The absurdity of the ordinary, whose beauty is all too often overlooked by saturated senses, is made visible in the vivid, highly colorful photographs of Philipp Keel. By demonstrating what can come into one's line of sight (or camera lens) through the simple act of looking with curiosity at the world, expecting not to see the usual but rather the unusual, the juxtaposed, the bright, the surreal, the exaggerated and the quixotic, Keel teaches the viewer to see with fresh eyes. His view over the harsh red illumination of the dashboard lights toward the liberating end of the tunnel is both disturbing and strangely hopeful. In photos full of movement and lightness, liveliness and spontaneity, irony and generous humor, perspectives surprise and reflections hint at a secret, puzzle-filled world that exists both in front of and behind the everyday one.
