Thomas Wrede, 1963, Germany, released his book Anywhere in 2010. It contains images of the series Real Landscapes and Seascapes. In Real Landscapes Wrede plays with reality and perspectives. The large printed images show houses or cars in idealistic yet impossible landscapes. He achieves these mind triggering results with the use of models and a large format camera. A year earlier he released the book Manhattan / Picture Worlds in which he photographs billboards in a clever way, again playing with the ratios. A dialogue evolves between the billboards and their surroundings.
