Right Time Right Place

Being at the right place at the right time is usually associated with happiness and success. But what happens when we are at the right place at the wrong time? Do we even know that this is the right place? And what if it turns out that it is the wrong place after all? But the right time!

Robert Rutöd's work revolves around an encounter with the shocking, the paradox, the ludicrous. The Austrian's photos look like those photos that you would see on social networks, forcing a faint smile. However, it has nothing to do with it.
