I saw these pictures last september during a hitchhiking trip in Ireland and I was looking for the photographer since this time!

01:06:09 toma: It was fascinating!

26:05:09 Patty: He’s showing in Modernism in San Francisco right now. So bomb.

26:05:09 René: One of the best and the best austrian Artist!!! Last year he had an exibition in Linz (Austria)

26:05:09 Hudson: love big photos

27:05:09 emily: kinda powerful-eventhough-its-hard-to-know-what-they-are-trying-to-say

27:05:09 emily: i’ve just had another thought…think what is like for those little girls having their faces displayed in that huge size where people have no choice wether to see then or not (god, i hope NONE of them got vandalised)

29:05:09 Lee: I live in Waterford, Ireland where Gottfried has all these displayed (still there) and the majority have been untouched. Although he did have a large print in the middle of the city square and that got a bit shredded by drunks / chavs in the night!
His piece across the river suir on the old seed mill is amazing (the one with the guys vaulting down it)

27:05:09 Jordan Arabejo: i just love the fact that he dares to exhibit his work in outdoor places. very selfless.  these are just fantastic by the way!

10:09:09 San Sharma: I’m sure that painting of the little girl, lying down with bandages around her head was included in the sleeve of Michael Jackson’s HIStory album.

26:09:09 Eugenio: YES! That’s Little Susie! I think, too.
