"I Became the Model"

Your rating: None Average: 5 (2 votes)


"Stay on the Bus!" was the statement in the first video with Arno Rafael Minkkinen.
It means to stay true to your own work and to be independent from other opinions. In this second part he illustrates this statement with the help of his own body of work.
In his exhibition at Arles 2013 he demonstrates the contract he made with his camera over four decades ago. Since then the contract permanently extended. The first point was a role reversal: Arno Minkkinen became the model, the camera became the photographer. Nudity, sculpture and transformation became further contract elements.
