Photographer Johnny de Brest adds his "photo-novel" "Vladracul" to the undying
body of vampire Lore. Loosely based on Bram Stoker's "Dracula", de Brest's work
draws hundreds of shots chosen from 15.000 images into a film-like montage of
photographic stills, divided into 12 chapters, each of which is preceded by written
text.

"VLADRACUL" TAKES CUES BOTH FROM F.W. MURNAU'S STARK
EXPRESSIONIST CLASSIC "NOSFERATU" AND COLOR-SATURATED
CONTEMPORARY FASHION PHOTOGRAPHY
"

"The result is a condensed, manic slice of the modern struggle over German
identity. The images don't preach, but thrill, like stills from a movie, or scenes
from a forgotten dream".

The Washington City Paper, USA, compares Johnny de Brest's
"Vladracul" (1991 - 1996) with the Work of Matthew Barney
(1995 - 2002) and Rainer Werner Fassbinder.

"...and the lurid local-color details... suggest a concept album that
David Bowie never got around to making during his Berlin phase.
(A soundtrack of late-’70s Bowie, Iggy, and Eno would be apt.)..."
