Each series of images and tableaux in Barbara Probst’s Exposures consist of up to fourteen individual images that capture the same moment from multiple perspectives. This enables the viewer to grasp the same moment from different perspectives without having to move—a visual paradox, so to speak. This book presents her latest, mostly unpublished works from areas that actually belong to classic genres of photography rather than to conceptual photography: street photography, fashion, nudes and still lifes. Particularly the commissioned fashion photographs have received great acclaim in international fashion magazines. The book is published in conjunction with a major solo exhibition at the Kunsthalle Nürnberg, Nuremberg.
