urban scenes    The photographer Peter Funch was born in Denmark, now living in New York. There’s one shining-through-clear thing in his work: the city’s a stage and it’s inhabitants the actors. What’s not so clear is what play it is we’re seeing. Are Funch’s photographs captured chunks of everyday life or are they images of a staged reality? Do these people and colours come together spontaneously or does the artist set up his own colourfully choreographed stage-show? Who cares. We certainly don’t because it causes us to doubt. And that’s what we like, doubt. Because doubt enables many things to happen, it creates opportunities, it makes people think, it’s entertaining, because it’s not dogmatic, because we don’t understand it, because it frightens us..
