Barbara Probst

Posted in Fotografer, Land / Tyskland, Video by fotografiskskole on 27. april 2011

Endnu et populært indlæg for ikke så længe siden var med kunstnerparret WassinkLundgren (her!). De havde taget billeder på gaderne i Tokyo med den særlige finte, at motivet blev fotograferet synkront fra to forskellige positioner.

Hvis du fandt dén idé interessant, så tjek lige Barbara Probst her! Hun betræder nemlig et lignende territorium, omend hendes serier ofte er noget mere komplekse. Alle serierne herunder beskriver nemlig den samme begivenhed, fotograferet synkront fra forskellige positioner.

Museum of Contemporary Photography i Chicago beskriver bl.a. Probst’s process således i forbindelse med en tidligere udstilling:

Probst’s Exposures make us feel the tension between being somewhere and imagining being somewhere else. Because her clustered pictures depict the same subject from various angles at precisely the same instant—a feat she achieves using radio controls, synchronized cable releases, and sometimes multiple photographers—they invite us to engage in a game of comparing and contrasting the locations of the cameras and photographers who took them. Despite the proximity of the cameras and the simultaneity of their exposures, the resulting images are extremely diverse in style, atmosphere, and content, concretely demonstrating that photographs are highly selective interpretations of reality. As her pictures subvert one another, they unsettle our faith in the idea of any sort of photographic “truth,” ultimately revealing the medium’s profound capacity to tell stories—and our propensity to believe them.

Af de 3 medtagne videoer vil vi især anbefale den første – herover – hvor Probst på glimrende vis formulerer sine overvejelser og forklarer sin fotografiske process. Altså hermed anbefalet!
