'This catalogue of the exhibition at Gallery Langhans in Prague presents works by the Dusseldorf photo artist Hans-Peter Feldmann from the last 30 years. Feldmann bases his work on images collected from advertising, magazines, archives, and even private photo albums. He creates little typologies by mounting photographs, books, and photographs from books into narrative arrangements. The montages he creates are not predictable but rather present a surprising journey through everyday life. Feldmann is an artist of international importance. In the 1970s he participated in the 1972 and 1977 documentas in Kassel. This book reflects his interest in the momentum of human perception and the processing of images.'
