Vera Nowottny 

Vera Nowottny, born in Bad Neustadt Saale in 1970, is a German visual artist and photographer based in Munich. In her artistic works she pursues two photographic perspectives. One concerns seeing and the situational reaction to external processes, for which digital photography is used. One the other hand, she works in an analogue manner, with the camera obscura and sheet films as recording media. This allows her technical flexibility in generating images that cannot be implemented using digital photography. In contrast to the former, these images are created in the head and are not based on sight.

 

Graupause1 und Graupause2

Graupause1 und 2 ist Teil einer Serie einer fotografisch analogen Interpretation von Frühlingsgefühlen, die am Ende eines sich sehr lange anfühlenden Winters entstand. Mittels einer Belichtung auf einem analogen Planfilm entstand in der klassischen Manier des Photogramms und des, abweichend vom sonst üblichen Gebrauchs einer Camera Obscura, die Serie „Graupause“. Dabei wurde der lichtempfindliche Aufnahmeträger von 4x5inch in der Lochkamera zur farblichen und formalen Visualisierungsfläche von Blüten, auf der sich zugleich materielle Spuren des Dargestellten manifestieren. Diese Vorgehnsweise steuert gegen das Massenmedium der digitalen Fotografie und basiert auf der These, dass wir über die Digitalisierung den haptischen Umgang mit natürlichen Materalien verloren haben.

 

Graupause1 and Graupause2

Graupause 1 and 2 is part of a series of a photographically analogue interpretation of spring feelings that arose at the end of a winter that felt very long. By means of an exposure on an analog sheet film, the series „Graupause“ was created in the classic manner of the photogram and, contrary to the usual use of a camera obscura. In the process, the light-sensitive 4x5-inch recording medium in the pinhole camera became a color and formal visualization surface for flowers, on which material traces of what was depicted also manifest themselves. This approach steers against the mass medium of digital photography and is based on the thesis that we can use digitalization to deal with have lost natural materials.
