Beschrijving

In Beyrouth objets trouvés Jeroen Kramer not only finds beauty and meaning in the seemingly mundane objects he photographs – a crumpled up nylon bag, a discarded plastic coffee cup, a fading poster on a wall – but he literally re-finds and redefines them through his images. It is as if they become the coordinates or clues of a place that hitherto has been invisible to our eyes, simply because we have always overlooked it, and because once a coffee cup has been thrown on the ground with its content emptied, it has outlived its use value for us. Not for Kramer. In his photos these objects take on new lives and become intimate carriers of meaning; they whisper stories we can barely comprehend, but somehow know are there. They become the fragile markers of the specificity of place. These solitary objects inhabit the city of Beirut as its unacknowledged inhabitants. Kramer has brought them to life for us.
