The story
behind that picture
"Two Brothers in Qatar"

By Thorsten von Overgaard

I WAS ALONE in the desert with Al Thani, working on photographing the desert and horses when two boys came by to see what was happening.

Even the desert seems large and empty and you feel you are hours from civilization, fact is that quite many cars and people pass throiugh.

Suddently, a SUV car stopped next to us and four brothers and their dad stepped out to see what we were up to in the desert.

 

 

I asked the two brothers to stay exactly as they were, and that was the "Two Brothers in Qatar" portrait.

I was in Qatar for ten days, working with Khalid Al Thani personally in his projects to document the desert. Often we worked at night by the moonlight, but we usually prepared during the day.

I have made this print in different sizes and people from all over the world, without the slightest connection to Qatar or the family in the photo, seem to be more than happy ot have this print on their wall.

My Largest Prints - The 72" Aluboard Print is an Art Statement

My largest prints are usually five to six feet tall (72 inches/180cm); "stand-alone prints" made on glossy photo paper (c-print) that is laminated on 3mm aluboard aluminum plates (also known as “The Rolls Royce of photo printing”). The aluboard has mountings and distance bricks on the back, so they are ready to hang with just two screws on the wall. It's a format that doesn't require a frame, and it just floats half an inch or so from the wall. I like this type of photo because it's impressive, it's a statement, and the photo dominates and sets the tone for the room, hallway or space it hangs in.

         
         

Exhibition prints


The Salzburg Collection is a series of 68 prints from the Leica Galerie Salzburg exhibition.

The Raffles Collection Singapore
Raffles-Collection Singapore is a series of large 72" prints from the exhibition "I Am Here" .

 


My smallest size print here, shown the way I usually have prints framed.

My smallest prints are 4 x 6 inches

Sometimes I just want to have a photo because I like it. I am not trying to fill a space on a wall, and I am not running a gallery or a museum. In fact, I am not even a collector. I am just gathering things I like; which is original art that is personalized by the artist (usually signed and/or given to me as a gift). In my home I have prints of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Stanley Cubrick, Peter Turnley, Jan Grarup, Paul Wolff, Helmut Newton and many others. Many of them are relatively small prints that can fit on a relatively small wall section, as an integrated part of my home. I made this "junior collector size" of 4.25 x 5.5 inches available because it gives many people the possibility to have one or more of my photos at a very reasonable price, and it happens to be a size I like myself. They can even stand on a desktop, and I think they are awesome.
