Background Information about Annelies Strba
If one can ever speak of color-intoxicated photography it is standing in front of pictures by Annelies Strba (*1947 in Zug). The images seems to be lit from within, both saturated and enigmatic. Though the contrasts are exaggerated and the bodies always disintegrate into haziness, the pictures maintain something very personal, which transports a mood that makes them immediately accessible to all; the aura’s immediacy is undoubtedly one of the Swiss photographer’s fortes. She turns her attentive eye to her family, in particular to her three children, and to themes such as “outside in the world,” which reflect the difficulties, tristesse, and the Shadows of the Times (the title of her book). The results are archetypal icons and images of mysterious guises of nature as well as illuminations of historic and social focal points of emotional directness.
Strba has relied on video for ten years. She edits and condenses make-believe sequences from the film stills that she filters out. Her work with the camera seems a physical necessity, one she has pursued since the age of 15. When everyday routine with its shredding pettiness threatens to get her down, she reaches for her camera: “When I look through the lens, I am back to myself.”
