SIX DEGREES OF FREEDOM: JESSICA BACKHAUS. Kehrer Verlag, Heidelberg, 2015. 112 pp. with 65 ills. (53 col.). 28 x 23 cm. ISBN 9783868286670 Bilingual in English and German.
Publisher's description: With her latest photographic series Jessica Backhaus examines, universal questions of human existence. Based on her own life story she inquires after the significance of knowing the roots of one's own existence and to what extent it is possible to re-elaborate these -- usually prescribed -- roots. With her photographs she symbolically captures the essence of this search and of her life stages. Simultaneously, she pulls off the balancing act of keeping the images open for the beholder. Her photographs possess metaphoric potential and work against the grain of a classic social documentary photography. They alternate between realism and abstraction.
