The mission of the project gRAZaNDERS is to entertain with images, that would exist under 'normal' circumstances. The artist, Austrian photographer and Red Bull Illume category winner Philip Platzer, intends to strengthen solidarity and cohesion through his work. He wants to highlight that his hometown Graz in the southern Austrian province of Styria is not in a state of emergency but different, a way of seeing things positive. His black and white approach leaves room for interpretation for the viewer and catches decisive moments, that unite us all over the world during these times. There's hope, that from it positive can grow for the future.
gRAZaNDERS is a non-profit project. Any kind of proceeds will go to a good cause.
