Summary note
N her last publication A Trilogy (Kehrer), Jessica Backhaus has taken a path into abstraction, which is consistently continued here ? with analog, photographic methods. Cut out transparent paper reacts to the heat of intense sunlight, deforms, rises, and casts shadows. The photographer who arranged and staged these compositions becomes an aston-ished observer of events on which she has only limited influence, the documentarist of a visual experimental arrangement, a poetic choreog-raphy of intense colors in the sunlight.Jessica Backhaus (b.1970) is considered as one of the most distinguished voices in con-temporary photography in Germany today. Her work is exhibited and collected internationally, she lives and works in Berlin. With Cut Outsshe presents already her eighth publication with Kehrer Verlag00Exhibition: Galerie Anja Knoess, Köln, Germany (2021) / Photo Basel, Robert Morat Galerie, Basel, Switzerland (2021) / The Eye Sees, Robert Morat Galerie, Arles, France (2021) / Paris Photo, Robert Morat Galerie, Paris, France (2021) / Robert Morat Galerie, Berlin, Germany (2022)/
