This shot amounts to nothing much, photographically. And still it means a lot to me. It shows part of my first photo exhibition ever. Only after we were done hanging the pictures, I realized I had wanted to do this for ages. Maybe since I had been a kid, even. It was only eleven pictures, a video and a reading, but I still see it as a dream come true. Eleven years after I got into photography I could show eleven of my pictures at an actual gallery. For a whole month. The pictures were on sale, and I actually sold one.
My exhibition, as part of a larger effort by my artist’s group “Tübinger Holzmarkt”, was called “Die verbesserte Natur” which can be roughly translated as “On improving nature”. What I meant by that title I explained during that aforementioned reading. The grand opening took place on June 28, the exhibition was closed on July 26, 2014.
The four pictures shown here, from left to right:
Oh, and the edges of that layer of acrylic glass protecting the images? They cut like they were made to. Gloves definitely recommended.
I made a movie about the exhibition (German only).
