Andreas Valentin Currently researching the work of Brazilian entomologist and photographer José Oiticica Filho (1906-1964), father of artist Hélio Oiticica (1937-1980). Making use of various techniques, such as photograms, luminograms, painting on film and light-sensitive paper, his work – still largely unknown – connects with the Brazilian concrete and neoconcrete production of that period as well with similar concepts in European, especially German photography of that period.

Other research interests: History of Photography, Visual Anthropology, Popular Culture, Youngsters and Photography Practices.
