Peter Piller works with photographs that have already circulated in the media, and has compiled a huge archive of quotidian images. As a rule, the appropriated photographs are isolated from their context according to specific criteria and presented in non-original size in a new arrangement. A new version of the pictures results, offering the observer the opportunity to arrive at a more individual interpretation. At the same time, Peter Piller’s works always are analyses of the medium of photography.
