Stranger Things From Max Slobodda

A lack of logic illuminates the surreal stills of Max Slobodda’s ‘Stranger Things’ series. Beneath a veil of mystique, the Dortmund-based photographer leaves no trace of context, inviting viewers to determine their own narrative.

Through his deconstruction of reality, Max explores the human need for logical explanation and asks, “Is it even possible at all to imagine the unimaginable and accept it as a fact?” With ‘Stranger Things’, Max aims for the emotions of the viewer to determine the narrative behind each image: “What we see, believe to see, want to see and can see, are all things that work together and simultaneously against each other. In ‘Stranger Things’, I want to let the incomprehensibility be incomprehensible and not to force any logical explanations but rather let the emotions decide absolutely free.” Here, we chat to Max about his transition from street to staged photography, and how a broken camera led him to begin his ‘Stranger Things’ series.
