Johann Husser was born in Siberia, Russia (1990). He initially studied Spatial Planning before receiving a BA in Photography (2013) in Dortmund, Germany. He's a recipient of the "Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes" scholarship. "Our only true life is in the future" dictates O´Brien in 1984 by Orwell. This series attempts to create a hypothetical future vision, which is inspired by books such as "1984", "Stalker" etc. . Drawing material not only from my own photographic stock, but also from the archives of the NASA, the project questions scientific progress and transports the viewer into a dystopian place.
