On the occasion of an exhibition featuring his magazine Ohio, the renowned german artist Hans Peter Feldmann asked Peter Fischli and David Weiss to send him photographs that they did not consider good enough to use in their work, but that they had nonetheless not thrown away. Since then, these types of images have come to be known as Feldmann pictures. Inspired by this idea, we decided to create a new column, in which we ask different artists to share a selection of photographs that they keep shut away in a drawer. We are starting with the photographer and artist Jeff Burton, who also gave us a perfect description for this column: “it’s like having a studio visit with someone you trust and sharing more than you normally would.” Here is his selection, encompassing the various genres of his practice: portraiture, landscape, fashion, porn, interiors and still-life.
