Zwei Freunde (in Königsberg/Kaliningrad)

Für Kunstpreis beworben: Motiv “Zwei Freunde”

14.06.2021 – „Mensch – wo bist Du?“, so nennt der Kunstverein [KUN:ST] Stuttgart International seinen diesjährigen Kunstpreis. Andreas Bromba hat sich mit dem Motiv „Zwei Freunde“ beteiligt. Es stammt aus der Fotoreportage über Königsberg/Kaliningrad vom August 2019. Es gibt ein eher symbolisches Preisgeld von 300 €. Sollte Andreas gewinnen, wird er diesen Betrag spenden, und zwar an Veto e.V. – Futter für die Vergessenen. Das Bild zeigt, was Menschen ausmacht: Eine echte Freundschaft hält lebenslänglich. Und was ist der Mensch ohne echte Freunde (oder Freundinnen)? Gerade in Zeiten von Corona-bedingter Vereinsamung, Oberflächlichkeit und allgemein unruhiger Grundstimmung. Das geht natürlich auch ohne den Kunstpreis: Schaut mal rein und lasst ein paar Euro springen, wenn ihr was übrighabt: Hier ist der Link zur Abstimmung für den Kunstpreis [KUN:ST] Preis 2021 „Mensch, wo bist Du?“– Andreas Bromba findet ihr in der mittleren Kategorie [Grafik/Digitale Medien/Fotografie]:

The human being counts – need we say more about portraits? From analogue with the legendary Polaroid 35mm films to digital technology: Andreas Bromba uses technology only as a tool, not as an end in itself. Black and white is photographed in black and white or intended to be black and white – that’s the only way black and white photography works in the digital age. But colour is also quite nice. Many photographs are from reportages for daily newspapers like Berliner Zeitung, Berliner Morgenpost or die Welt. Others are for artists or bands. Or just because.

BERLIN ROYAL: new pictures

30.11.2020 – Andreas Bromba continues the royal search for traces in Berlin. As museums, buildings and collections are constantly closed in the Corona Year, sculptures, parks and cemeteries come back into focus: Prussia is putting up a brave fight and refusing to become invisible. That’s a good idea, the photographer thinks.

münchen minimal – it goes on

münchen (munich) minimal – the successful berlin minimal series now finds its long-planned continuation: Andreas Bromba has been photographing the Bavarian capital since September 2020. The goal is again: to see the familiar in a new way, to discover one’s own city as well as to overcome contrasts through the minimalist visual language – and of course the joy of art. berlin minimal was photographed with the sensational PolaGraph 35mm film – in other words, analogue. Unfortunately, Polaroid has taken this film, which is very popular with photographers, off the market. Andreas Bromba has therefore modernised its pictorial language and created his own – now digital – template that comes close to the original. In doing so, he deliberately refrained from imitating the coarse-grained and sometimes unpredictable PolaGraph film. In the foreword to the berlin minimal exhibition book, the then Berlin Senator for Culture, Prof. Christoph Stölzl, wrote: “I am certain that these pictures can give their viewers the most beautiful pleasure that art has in store for us: Surprise, amazement, recognition and smiles.” In …

Mystic Mayan Land

Mystic Mayan land: Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula and the Caribbean Sea – turquoise, green and emerald. These are also the colours of Andreas Bromba’s new photo series. In it, the ancient stone buildings, pyramids and artefacts of the once important Mayan city of Chichén Itzá are also shown in many shades. There are about 30 motifs from September 2019, mostly from Chichén Itzá. In addition, there are further motifs from the Museum of Ethnology in Mexico City, a unique museum worldwide for the ancient peoples of Mesoamerica. Many well-known motifs have been impressing visitors from all over the world here for decades: the “sun wheel” of the Aztecs, creepy goddesses and gods (good models for horror films) or the Olmec heads weighing tons. Mexico is too big – you can’t see everything. The Museum of Ethnology is a good substitute. The museum’s outdoor areas are particularly well done: you think you’re standing in a (primeval) forest. Some motifs were created here, as if in the dense forest of Yucatan – and yet in the middle of …

Neu: Mystisches Maya-Land

15.04.2021 – Mystisches Maya-Land: Mexikos Halbinsel Yucatan und das Karibische Meer – türkis, grün und smaragdgrün. Das sind auch die Farben der neuen Fotoserie von Andreas Bromba. Die Fotografien stammen überwiegend aus der einst bedeutenden Maya-Stadt Chichén Itzá und zeigen alte Steingebäude, Pyramiden und Artefakte in all ihren Schattierungen – nicht touristisch, nicht archäologisch, sondern lebendig, als hätten sich die Erbauer und ihre Götter einfach nur vor den Eroberern versteckt.
