American, b. 1976

Karl Haendel is known for meticulous pencil drawings based on appropriated photographs. He is interested in investigating the properties of photography—inverting tones, scaling, and flipping images—but he prefers the slowness of drawing. “Photography becomes a tool, like a paintbrush […],” he explains, adding, “The ability to play with images is fundamental.” In 2011, he worked with filmmaker Petter Ringbom to create Questions for My Father, a film based on drawings Haendel made in 2007, such as Questions for My Father #2, that explore notions of masculinity.
