(2019)


Man steps in front of our Lord, the almighty.
Risen from the earths womb.
Broken through the fall of man.
A puppet admist the tempest of creation.

Being brought up in a religious family, Moses Omeogo has always been interested
in topics surrounding belief and mythology. Therefore, it happened quite naturally
that the choice for this project was biblical in nature. In this body of work he visualises
the process of creation and the fall of man according to the old testament.

“In his series Urpsrung, Moses Omeogo examines the borders of the
photographic practice. But is that still photography? He combines and splits images,
adds various graphic elements and reassambles them with body fragments.
Thus enhancing the scope and depth of his imagery. This is fantanstic and
a prime example for artistic collage. Therefore, the clear winner
of this years award in the category experiments with photography.”
