about the artist: "Raised in a small town in Germany and relocating to NY to work with the likes of Ryan McGinley the young photographer Peter Kaaden shoots strong, often provocative, graphic imagery, Inspired by youth, rebellion and the voyeuristic aspects of soft porn, his work features sometimes unsettling and often nude subjects as the result of his attempt to capture the reality of everyday life. Shooting only on film for the excitement of unexpected outcomes and lack of control over what he is producing, Kaaden thrives on spontaneous moments." Soho House Magazine - 2012www.peterkaaden.com
