Look at me

Exhibition & Book

This wild compilation of images emerges from Keel’s ceaseless curiosity for people and their environment. He is fascinated by the absurdity of life and captures it. The strong and expressive portraits in Look At Me present a clear and highly personal view in an utterly refreshing manner.

"Everybody takes pictures in the belief it is necessary to communicate a message. We look at all of these pictures and often see nothing. Our glance bounces off their surface, and we remain alone. Yet something quite different happens in Philipp Keel’s photographs. His choice of unique moments makes us recognize the miracle of being alive.“ – Doris Dörrie
