Influenced by Siegfried Hansen und Mario Cuic, Street Photography is the main interest of Susanne Baumgartner
“Finding a likeness in disconnected objects” – the specific photographic views of Susanne Baumgartner could hardly be described more accurately. Highly individual discovers the photographer in the streets things, relationships, resonances, echoes that nobody has ever seen, despite its ordinariness. Through her eyes, the seen and visible world transforms. The centering, pre-stamped by our thinking and perception schemata consider is dethroned. It is replaced by a decentralized vision that does not feel bound to the functional relationships of our world, but fragments bring into play another and generates imaginary dialogues and reflections. In the pictures of Susanne Baumgartner, the world is not a once and for all as it is, but open to what it could be. For the viewer this means photographic view that he has to learn his part, productively to see – to make viewing habits behind and decipher images, how to read a book: through art, to create internal images and meaning of signs.
