When a person dies, they are often left with a collection of objects. At first glance, these are usually trivial, worthless things. But for some people, they can be much more than that. In the photographic works in the series Die Dinge bleiben (The things remain), photo artist Jürgen Sobkowiak looks into every remote corner of his parents' house and examines the objects and memories left behind there.

The photographic works in the series Unkunst (Unart) are in the style of Surrealism, Neues Sehen and Neue Sachlichkeit. In his meticulously arranged still lifes, Jürgen Sobkowiak experiments with abstract forms and plays with light and shadow. He brings together various contradictory elements in a single photograph and questions, challenges and provokes the viewer's perception. Even the coincidence, which brings the unconscious to light, also becomes a creative element.

Focusing on the interaction between the human body and its environment, the artist uses photography as an instrument to explore his own existence. The essence of his work lies in the inner examination and the revealing of psychological processes. Always dressed in black, the artist uses his own body as a means of expressing his artistic imagination and interacts with spaces and objects. The works in the book Mensch|Raum (Man|Space) originate from the Mensch-Raum-Studien.
