"An intermission is a pause between two acts in a theatre play. These stacks of chairs, their clinical plastic white set in a rugged, rocky environment, for me form an almost animalistic and lonely imagination of something unpredictable that is yet to come. A moment of anticipation between two phases of movement and empathy."


Caspar Claasen (1975) is fascinated by extraordinary interactions between people, often individuals, and their everyday surroundings. How a seemingly mundane moment can become a short story when photographed – how an unplanned moment becomes so surreal, meaningful and aesthetic that it seems contrived. But it isn't.
