On a quest for an omnipresent gaze

First extensive monograph on the artist’s photographic series

In her photo series, Barbara Probst (*1964 in Munich) not only plays with the changing perspectives and fleeting moments of urban life, she also poses fundamental questions about photography and imagery. Using a shutter release mechanism controlled by radio waves, the artist can use up to fourteen cameras to simultaneously shoot a scene from a distance and from numerous angles. Together, the various camera standpoints and framings as well as different objects and film material result in a series of views that are not bound by stylistic features, the same genre, or formal proximity. The images are held together only by the point in time at which the shutter was released. Yet the arrangement of the photographs is so sophisticated that it creates intriguing dramaturgies that make reference to a variety of different photographic genres.
