"No two of the little houses are the same… carefully proportioned furnishings here are wildly contradicted with slapdash decorations over there. Everyone has thought about their buildings, brought materials, laid walls, used power drills, insulated, glued things, extended the previous tenant’s shed, retro-fitted a bigger window, added a television antenna. They are strange hybrid buildings, between tool sheds and dachas, gingerbread houses and orangeries." Ulf Erdmann Ziegler

Joachim Brohm (*1955) rose to prominence in the early 1980s, one of the first photographers in Europe to take pictures exclusively in colour, connecting the everyday cultural landscape with the new possibilities of colour photography.

This collection titled Typology 1979 is one of his very earliest series, depicting 35 allotment sheds from the Ruhr valley region of Germany, painterly images that are an everyday inventory – of garden structures, of human activity. Influenced by the great American photographers such as William Eggleston and Robert Adams, he also looked to his German contemporaries, Bernd and Hilla Becher, whose ‘typologies’ are heralded in the collection’s title.
