When Tobias Rahim and the legendary photographer Petra Kleis met one summer day, they had no idea what was waiting for them…
They had planned to just shoot an album cover. But in a moment of intoxication, Tobias Rahim began to undress. A duel developed between the two; one of those duels where only the silence speaks. The images became poetry and began to speak, in its own abstract language, a narrative of choosing oneself, and presenting oneself in an honest confrontation with the universe. 'Here I stand’ said the picture. ‘Love me or hate me. Here I stand.' The image rumbles of something, something resembling pride. But in reality there is something else for which there are no words.
That image and that summer day became the start of a project that is still finding its form, and therefore still lives in the abstract. A joint project between the two people: Tobias Rahim and Petra Kleis. Tobias Rahim insists that the project be called ‘The Neo Scandinavian Man’. Petra has chosen to accept the name, although she still does not quite understand it. But Tobias Rahim knows that name is exactly right – he doesn't doubt it. And the whole project is for him a showdown with ‘doubt’ – this indecisive variant of fear that slows man from following his intuition.
