HEIDI SPECKER: IN FRONT OF. Ed. by Ulrich Domrose. Berlinische Galerie, Berlin, 2016. Published in association with Snoeck Verlagsgesellschaft, Cologne. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 176 pp. 25 x 22 cm. ISBN 9783864421655 Bilingual in English and German.
Publisher's description: Photo-based German artist Heidi Specker examines the circumstances and conditions of the portrait in her newest photo-series, In front of -- a suite of 68 black-and-white and color portraits of people and animals, close-ups of body parts, or hands holding postcards or artworks. Interspersed with photographs of details of an empty studio between takes, the images draw the viewer into a dreamy and pensive atmosphere. The clean design of the modest, well-edited catalog puts these intimate portraits front and center while creating a sense of mystery and anticipation that keeps the viewer's interest on edge. Heir to the long history of German portraiture, especially that of the modernist photographers Renger-Patzsch and Otto Steinert, Specker creates an atmosphere that takes her portraits one step further to reveal the power structures and interdependencies between photographer and model during a sitting. With a preface by Thomas Kohler and a brief essay on the artist's technique by Ulrich Domroanse.
