Once, Still & Forever

Once, Still & Forever Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What was once, still is, and will forever remain is Jessica Backhaus's infallible instinct for pictorial composition, a deftness she continues to take to new heights. Her views of ostensibly prosaic scenes open up to us a cosmos of unforeseen meanings while evoking a mood of affectionate familiarity.

Backhaus is regarded as one of the most distinguished voices in contemporary photography today. Her work is exhibited internationally and is found in important collections.

This new edition of her successful publication Once, Still and Forever (2013) is limited to one thousand signed copies, clad in iridescent linen with embossing and tipped-in title shield.

Synopsis:

New work by one of the most distinguished voices in contemporary photography in Germany today.

About the Author

Jessica Backhaus, born in Cuxhaven, Germany in 1970 and grew up in an artistic family. At the age of sixteen, she moved to Paris, where she later studied photography and visual communications. Here she met Gisele Freund in 1992, who became her mentor. In 1995 her passion for photography drew her to New York, where she assisted photographers, pursued her own projects and lived until 2009.

Jessica Backhaus is regarded as one of the most distinguished voices in contemporary photography in Germany today. Her work has been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions, including the National Portrait Gallery, London, and the Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin. To date, she has four publications to her name; Jesus and the Cherries, 2005, What Still Remains, 2008, One Day in November, 2008 and I Wanted to See the World, 2010 all published by Kehrer Verlag, Heidelberg. Her photographs are in many prominent art collections including Art Collection Deutsche Börse, Germany, ING Art Collection, Belgium, Collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, USA and the Margulies Collection, Miami, USA. Backhaus is represented by Robert Morat Galerie in Hamburg and Berlin, Robert Klein Gallery in Boston and Projektraum Knut Osper in Cologne.

Elisabeth Biondi has been the visuals editor at The New Yorker for fifteen years before she left the magazine and began pursuing new curatorial endeavors in 2011.

Jean Christophe Ammann, born 1939 in Berlin, Germany, is an art and photography curator and former director of MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt a.M., Germany.
