Onorato & Krebs in Moscow
The La Lettre de la Photographie blog introduces Onorato and Krebs's work, currently on show in the Moscow House of Photography. Foam Amsterdam will be hosting the Swiss duo in June with some of their other work.
'Swiss humor is hardly one of the country's most popular exports. But the artists Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs (both Swiss, despite their names) have made a breakthrough in Moscow. Russian visitors giggle as they pass by the duo's clever collages. Onorato and Krebs: the future of comedy? Their original plan was to travel to the United States, capture the American dream, and relive the emotions of their idols, the masters of American photography: Robert Frank, Stephen Shore, William Eggleston, William Christenberry, Robert Adams and Joel Sternfeld.'
