    Silence has no expiration date
    You are holding the fifth volume in a series that shows Holger Dülken's photographic work over the past few years

    "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder."
    How often do you hear this sentence. But how often do we actually look at ourselves? Not externals, but our soul? Looking in the mirror reveals only a reflection. No more and no less. However, he says nothing about us. It's different with pictures. Then we are seen through something else. We look at ourselves in our pictures. See moments that we have experienced in which we could let ourselves go. Pictures in which the soul speaks –  Or not if we don't let it. we recognize things  which would have remained hidden if these images did not exist.

    Holger Dülken's series of monographs from the cycle "Lochbildfotografie" shows a modern visual language with technical borrowings from the historical times of the camera obscura. A unique pictorial language takes us on a journey into the photographer's emotional world of the author and shows us the expressiveness of artistic photography, contrary to technical advances.
    Through the black and white photography in the style of the perforated image technique, the soul crystallizes out in the pictures in a very special way - the essence is preserved, the insignificant disappears in the shadows and in the blur.
    Holger Dülken has his own unmistakable black and white photographic signature.
    The series is accompanied by texts and thoughts by Andreas Neu, a Berlin author, director and dramaturge, who, through his associations, makes a very personal reflection on the images.

    The Silent Has No Expiration Date
    What you hold in your hands is the fifth volume of a series  hat highlights the photographic work of Holger Dülken in the  last few years.

    We hear this phrase quite a lot. But how often do we really look at us in the mirror? Not at our outward appearance but at our souls? A look in the mirror reveals just that, a reflection of ourselves - nothing more and nothing less. But it doesn't tell anything about us as a person. Only photography can do that because it's a different kind of look. We look at ourselves through these photos. We see moments that we experienced  when we could let things go. In these photos, our souls talk –  or not, depending on if we let it happen or not. We recognize things that would have stayed hidden without these photos.

    The series of the cycle "hole pattern photography" shows a modern imagery applying some historical techniques of the pinhole camera era. A unique imagery takes us to the journey into the author's photographic emotional world and demonstrates the vigor of artistic expression in contrast to technical high development.
    In the black and white pictures in pinhole camera style the soul of a person emerges in a very unique way – the essence remains untouched; the insignificant parts disappear in the shadows and the blur.
    Holger Dülken's signature style are unique, characteristic pictures in black and white.
    Texts and thoughts, which were written by Berlin-based author, director and dramaturg Andreas Neu, provide a framework for this book series. He reflects in a very personal way on the connotations of these photos can evoke.
