The internationally renowned German photographer Sascha Weidner will be in New Zealand. In Wellington and Auckland he will give talks about his work and passion for photography.

Weidner will give lectures on the topic "Until It Hurts – Photography as a Picture of Empathy & Pictorial Narration". He will talk about his art and discuss his photography which are traces of past events. Personal records that as pictorial components and codes can be integrated into Weidner’s autobiographical narrative structure. The illustrated lecture will also include his short film 9:48.

"Sascha Weidner works within a radical subjective pictorial world. This world is greatly influenced by the perceptions, longings and dreamed images of a generation whose credo can perhaps be best described by the slogan 'no future – much present.' The drums... batter away in the background, the guitars scrape. It sounds like punk, but is, in fact, the next, and next-again, and next-next-again generation: now the rhythms are more melodic, and the melodies are gentler. Sascha Weidner’s photographs are like songs.Their poetry soaks up memories and longings and creates real / unreal images of resonating beauty. Life is a film, and every image stands for longing." Inka Schube (Sprengel Museum), Germany
