"Stalker II", 2010
Signed Andreas Kock and numbered 9/15 verso. C-print 120 x 160 cm.
The Stockholm based Andreas Kock (b. 1973) is mainly working within the fashion world, his works are often characterized by a strong sense of attention to details where his staged sets continuously develops in a conceptual way. One could also see the strong influences from both icons within the art and film history, such as Helmut Newton and Alfred Hitchcock in Kock’s imagery.
He is perhaps most well known for his photography series called “Stalker” where he is photographing different women through a window.
“His clear theatrical control of colors and light/ dark contrast are reminiscent of the American painter Edward Hooper. Thus he is bound to the desire for the sub textual, the stories that he only suggests with his photographs.”
