Through his manipulated images and self-portraits, Torsten Solin (*1972, Jena, Germany) explores social and gender stereotypes, creating a complex (photo) album that can be read in a variety of ways.

Memory, which usually stands at the heart of a photo album, is eradicated by the artist’s obsessive play with notions of identity and self-portrayal. The historical photographic materials that he uses as the basis for these new works are given a new function through artistic appropriation.
