Peter Hauser’s ‘ANGST’ comes as a wake-up call, a mirror that allows us to assess and reflect on the world we inhabit today. Every image in this series of photographs taken between 2017 and 2020 offers an underlying reference to contemporary issues, particularly the disruption of consumerism, trade, globalisation, and travel we currently face. Increasingly concerned with the effects of climate change, Hauser faces an existential crisis on multiple levels: as an artist, a human being, and an observer of the environment around him. He explores themes in nature and infrastructure and experiments with composed still lifes. Tellingly, the images are devoid of human protagonists.
