Jasper Rasmussen

Jesper Rasmussen was born in 1959. His Off Location consists of a series of photographs that represent buildings and recognizable locations in the public space. The buildings at first appear familiar, but at the same time there is something alienating and uncanny about these pictures. They have all been digitally retouched, so that all traces of human presence and activity have been removed.


The retouching contributes to the disquieting effect of the images. The familiar, the recognizable, hides within it something inhuman, uncanny, reducing our ordinary, trivial, everyday spaces to an uninhabited, set-piece universe that shows a deceptive resemblance to reality.

It kind of reminds me of the work by Joseph Schulz. Even if in in a somewhat lower key..
