Hans-Peter Feldmann. Smoke

Hans-Peter Feldmann

Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, Köln, 2007



A woman in a hospital bed. A post-coital couple. Two kids in the woods. A burlesque dancer. A group of flappers on the beach. A coal miner. An Afghan rebel with a machine gun. A pregnant woman. Picasso. Chet Baker. Female welders on break. A group of nuns. All smoking. This concise artist’s book is an homage and a small consolation. Dusseldorf cult conceptual photographer Hans Peter Feldmann, who has smoked for 30 years, here attacks the burgeoning international movement against smoking in public places with a series of found photographs that illustrate the positive sides of the act.
