Walter Pfeiffer (*1946)—artist, photographer, poster designer, playwright, and filmmaker—has been shuttling back and forth for years between the visual worlds of art and lifestyle. Regardless of whether he is staging a still life or getting closer to people with his camera, Pfeiffer’s photographs always have a latently erotic aspect. Often, he works over a longer period of time with his models to develop a melancholic, seductive atmosphere almost resembling a state of sleepwalking, which, however, never seems voyeuristic or crude. In a manner practically unlike anyone else’s, Pfeiffer discovers color-intensive and expressive contexts in daily life. Through his extraordinary perspectives and scenes he gives his ordinary objects and protagonists an almost glamorous dignity and beauty.
