Publisher's Description
Polish photographer Andrzej Steinbach (b.1983) plays with the idea of photography and what we actually see and what we don't. He repeatedly subverts reality by pairing his images to reveal the ambiguities in his models. Nothing is explicit in Figur 1 Figur 2, the large black-and-white portrait series and subject in both catalog and exhibition at the Sprengel Museum, Hanover. Reminiscent of Marianne Wex's photo studies, they ask the viewer to look carefully and make comparisons. Figure I and Figure II are of two young women, each figure looking either more female or male to the viewer's gaze. 'Figure I' is photographed against a neutral background, striking different poses and dressed in an assortment of clothes that prevent ascribing to her a fixed role. The same is true of 'Figure II': she stands in front of a lamella curtain, trying on a tube cowl. Again, no clear-cut role can be assigned.
