Elfie Semotan

Photography for the BOOK PROJECT

May 1 - June 13, 2009



In 1996 Elfie Semotan and Martin Kippenberger had the idea of a joint project, a book of photographs from Semotan´s archive that would be straightforwardly selected. Because the photographs are out of focus, because people´s legs, arms or heads are cropped, because they contain no complete information, they seem to have absolutely no value.By extended contemplation, the photographs nevertheless generate a particular aesthetic and emotional quality.
An initial selection of 136 works introduces this project by Elfie Semotan and Martin Kippenberger.
