Publisher's Description
In the beginning there was a prop. A fan. A top hat. A sunflower. The pent-up horn of a gramophone player, baritone strains begging to be audible again. Discarded objects, stubbornly guarding the memory of those who once held them dear. Forms frozen in time, holding out for something beyond the evasiveness of life. Red shoes. Stuffed birds. Sedentary paper cones. Props made or found that under Bodil Frendberg's discerning eye are not only brought to life, but become central to a poetics of metamorphosis. A poetics made complete, and immortalised, throughout her textured and highly personal approach to the process of photography.

Freeing them from their intended functions and from oblivion in second-hand shops or skips, Frendberg brings her props into settings created specifically for each piece, often in unexpected connections with the human figure. The play with light and shadow features strongly in the settings, in the search for an in-between space, that twilight zone rippling with the potential for release, for the taking on of new forms.
