The photographer Birgit Moser currently focuses on fine art photography – on still lives portraying the strange moments of daily life. She is interested in all phenomena of light and how light transforms the seemingly obvious into a new reality – thus creating the magic of the image. In the digital era, on the other hand, all seems instant, open and transparent. In photography, each image can be turned into another reality with a myriad of tools and tricks. In search of a new, inner reality, I encounter the mystery of simple objects. Interiors, that turn into grand solo stars, symbols of the near past, witness of time’s journey, calling on memory – it can be an eighties lamp or a year-old towel, ready for use, yet estranged, mysterious in its setting. Outside objects can also develop a similar transcendent atmosphere, no matter if seen from inside or viewed directly outside. In particular, the view through the window sets scene for the outside, it adds a poetic twist, mirrors a special moment of tranquil transcendence, looking inside out, showing a glimpse of the soul of the object, my soul.
