Bernhard Moosbauer >

In his photographic works Bernhard Moosbauer concerns himself with exemplary situations, ostensibly perfect modes of being, and mannerisms. In his series 'champions' his subject is the world of beauty contests for poodles. He doesn't show the owners and their surroundings, however, nor the close-knit world of the contests. Rather, Bernhard Moosbauer portrays the dogs by presenting them human-like. A field of tension develops between grandeur, melancholy, eroticism, glamour and irony.
