Unverzart creates pictures that ask questions of the viewer that are both subtle and sometimes melancholy. His coarse-grained black-and-white photographs, taken with analogue cameras; evoke associations on the one hand of a transience, but at the same time of an openness that involves narration, His motifs suggest things, but they avoid a presentation that is overtly explanatory.
Influenced by great names of photographic history, such as Robert Frank, Garry Winogrand or Anders Petersen, wanders leisurely through the world with his camera, always using the medium as a mirror to himself as well.
»don't fade to grey« certainly doesn't get stuck in the grey, but with its black and white tones points out the two extremes of life, which influence every moment. His way of reading traces emphasises this banal realisation again and again. In combination with book designer Andreas Töpfer, who has won many awards, Unverzart sees his publication as a statement that archives his works in combination with the book form, at the same time keeping them alive.
