Klaus Thymann


The new exhibition and book titled “Hybrids” explores various subcultures through photographs taken by Klaus Thymann from 2003 – 2007, investigating gay rodeos, an underwater striptease, snow polo and religious theme parks among many others. The sociological documentation is the material for a new 144 page book that the artist is debuting at the end of next month. The book is printed in a limited edition of only 500 copies, each containing an original print. Thymann will launch the book through several international galleries such as V1 Gallery in Copenhagen and DreamBags Jaguar Shoes in London; a date in New York City is to be determined for November. The artist lives and works in London as a professional photographer and filmmaker shooting for magazines such as ID, Flaunt, and GQ and clients like Depeche Mode and Greenday.
