Think You Could Be A Famous Actor? These Photos Will Make You Think Again.
Klaus Frahm has been a photographer for the past 36 years, and focuses mainly on architecture and occasionally on political-ethical or social subtexts. In 2010, he began to capture images of theaters and opera houses in a series titled The Fourth Wall: Stages.
"The Fourth Wall" is a term used in dramatic theory and cinema to describe an invisible barrier separating actors from their audience. Frahm's images invite the audience to see these arenas as actors do.
Anyone, from those who suffer with stage fright to avid theatergoers, can appreciate this unique perspective. Taken downstage, the photographs highlight details that we never usually see -- the scaffolding, lighting structures, and grandeur of the velvet seats. The view will make you feel like a star.
