Vielen Dank is a series of 22 photographs showing me posing while carrying or holding different men.
The pictures are printed on semi transparent architect paper and sewn together by hand. It appears as a very fragile and leightweight piece. The printing looks either rough because the very thin paper is not able to soak up all that amount of ink. The people are not wearing anything except underwear so a lot of their skin is shown. Just as the paper, skin aswell is see-through up to a certain amount. Some of the men are my friends, classmates and colleagues. Then there are my two professors and one assistent. Some are former lovers or dates. At least two of them are gay. The poses are shot against a white backdrop with studio light. The setting is visible in some of the pictures. Any of the 22 poses are different from each other.
