For the occasion, Sous Les Etoiles Gallery is publishing “Intersection of Color”, the first monograph of Jäger’s color works, bringing together different approaches to photographic color formation the artist experimented for sixty years. The monograph includes essays by Lyle Rexer and Bernd Stiegler and an interview with Gottfried Jäger by Corinne Tapia, director of Sous Les Etoiles Gallery. The book comes in a limited edition of 100 copies, numbered and signed by Gottfried Jäger.
Known as one of the greatest names in German photography, Gottfried Jäger (b. 1937, Burg near Magdeburg) is an experimental artist who, over the years, redefined the term “photography”. In breaking the boundaries of what the camera can perform, Jäger reexamines the objectivity of the photographic process.
In Jäger’s words, “The objective of my work is to induce a generative effect: to constantly provoke an endless generation of new forms and elements in a continuous process of renewal and rebirth. What is intended is not a standstill, but the image of an exchange, its infiltration, and its conversion.”
From the iconic Polarizations, the Luminograms and the Multiple Optics series, the show will include some never exhibited pieces, and a selection of silver gelatin prints.
