Entry Description

MOONSCAPE /from the series ROOF TRUSS — [the unoccupied space] Klaus Bock: The camera's view is not an everyday one. On the contrary, photographs live from the astonishment triggered in the viewer by the intrinsic qualities of the medium. Sandra Fockenberger's "unexpected" images consist of showing architectural elements that are usually concealed from sight or not consciously looked at: church roofs. The black-and-white photographs show forms that are lent an enormous plasticity by the richly contrast in the interplay between light and shadow, and that lead the spectator's eye into an impermeable black.
