A hybrid is the creation of something new, made by combining two different elements.
In Hybrids Thymann explores the grey areas on the cultural map by documenting fusion cultures around the globe. Familiar phenomenas are juxtaposing into surprising and yet recognisable same time. Hybrids features Snow Polo in St. Moritz, Gay Rodeo in Los Angeles, Underwater Striptease in Chile and Underground Gardening in Tokyo and more. Completed over a period of 4 years the project records a wide variety of cultural phenomena and portrays an extraordinary range of distinctive individuals.
