Description of Joachim Froese - Rhopography, 2003

Joachim Froese (*1963) is an Australian contemporary photographer living in Brisbane and Berlin. Born in Montreal, Canada, he grew up in Germany and immigrated to Australia in 1991. His works can be found in numerous public collections worldwide, including the National Gallery of Australia and the National Portrait Gallery of Australia. Froese regularly gives lectures at universities in Australia and Germany. He is probably best known for his constructed still lifes, which combine art history and nature photography. Between 1999 and 2003 he made a series of so-called rhopographies. The word rhopography is derived from the Greek word rhopos, which means trivial object, small thing. The Rhopographies are a series of black and white still lifes composed of leftover food and dead insects, a tradition that was particularly fashionable in the Baroque period.
