Photographer #102: Michael Najjar

German photographer Michael Najjar, 1966, focuses in his photography on the notion of our society being "driven and controlled by computers and information technology." He made many impressive series throughout his career. In his most recent series, High Altitude, he went to 7000 meters altitude in the Andes to photograph mountains, only to combine them with the statistics of the Nasdaq or the Dow Jones and thus visualizing the development of the leading global stock market. The series Bionic Angel deals with the technological control of human evolution. Netropolis is about the development of cities in the future. These images are a combination of twelve hybrid photographies, one videowork and one image sculpture. Following images come from the three series described above.
