Somalia Houses photographed by Olaf Unverzart shows a series of dwellings in the Somali-Ethiopian border area.
"In addition to the social aspect, Unverzart was interested in the system of layers and the improvisation of building a house. Likewise, colors and fabrics become important pictorial elements to learn more about a way of life." — Phroom
His photographs are mostly made as travel pictures - but they tell us more about the photographer himself than they tell about the world in the traditional sense. He stands in the tradition of a restless, curious strollers who roams the world - always interested in what lies on or in the way, what the moment, the apparent chance offers - seeing and photographing events that only last for a fraction of a second Image.
His conceptual approach is to be seen parallel to this and equally important: First to take apparently non-existent pictures: First, to let them emerge in the imagination, by long-term pursuit of self-selected topics such as years of preoccupation with the mountains and the alpine topography, through patient waiting , through an interest in space and tangible constellations.
