MONASH GALLERY OF ART is pleased to welcome leading contemporary German photographer Matthias Koch

Matthias is visiting Melbourne in conjunction with presentation/representation: photography from Germany, an exhibition exploring the contemporary perspectives of 10 German photographers on display at Monash Gallery of Art from 2 July – 30 August 2009
Matthias Koch was a master student of Professor Bernd Becher at the Art Academy Düsseldorf. In his series 'Orte deutscher Geschichte' (sites of German history) Matthias explores historically significant areas and buildings in Germany from an unfamiliar elevated perspective. Although he utilises the language and style of documentary photography Koch is more concerned with "something that you cannot simply see" – the events of the past.
