We'll go as far as the sun, Jessica Backhaus

A colorful world, a world in which reality is divided into sequences like in a film. Photography has so many problems understanding reality that it has to create its own, and if it's going to do that, it might as well reflect a personal universe: under the amused and protective gaze of Henri Matisse and Josef Albers.

Jessica Backhaus is considered one of the most prominent voices of contemporary photography in Germany today. Her work has been the subject of numerous solo and group exhibitions, including at London's National Portrait Gallery, Berlin's Martin-Gropius-Bau, MARTa Herford and Erfurt's Kunsthalle. To date, she has published ten books, nine of which are published by Kehrer Verlag, Heidelberg.
