In Light we Fade

Shadow Stories

an exhibition at Photobastei

From 02. to 19. March 2017

Sihlquai 125, 8005 Zürich, 3. Floor, Room VI


A conceptual work about light, shadow and fuzziness, told by shadows in three short stories. This work is going back on an idea of abstracting fashion photography by couple Himmel & Bassman in the early 50's. Using the same equipment from that time like diffuse light sources, shadows, fuzziness and analogue film material, a kind of feminine ethereal light sculptures arose.

Long exposures capture floating shadows onto the film material as we can not see them but rather imagine them. An experimental development chemistry creates chaotic structures on the silver gelatine paper, which underlines the mystic impression. Oil colour is used to provide the slight colour of the prints.

In Light we Fade

This series further explores how movements captured over a period of time result in translucent and fading bodies.


October 2016

Shadow Dance

A sister project to the Unseen Shadows series.


May 2016

Rhythm of a City

A project about time and perception. In this series the simplest of all cameras - a Pinhole Camera - opens its shutter to catch the light for 15-20 seconds throughout the travel with a train at each stop, catching  any movement at the stop itself and then when train starts again to move.

August 2015

Long time exposure was used for this mystic shadows series. The eye sees every moment in time like a continuous film but our brain might be not capable of storing and imagine what a view minutes of such impressions might look like compressed to one image. Unseen Shadows are captured shadows through long exposure.

February 2015

For the series Places of our Youth I could visit some lido during off-season. The places appear to be abandoned but are of course maintained. Still the absence of people creates a feeling of loneliness and a sentimental view back to youth.
