Marion Kalter - HERSTORY
Exhibition run: February 5 – March 26, 2016
Pigment Print, 40 x 26,5 cm
HERSTORY is an intimate photographic diary by photographer Marion Kalter, who was born in Salzburg but grew up in France, where she now lives. The exhibition features photographs spanning four decades of photographic output. Alongside a professional oeuvre Kalter has created an extensive and highly personal body of work over the years, comprised of self-portraits and portraits taken within and around her family.
The secret to a ‘good’ portrait lies in the analytical visualisation of what lies within. It is the ability to transpose oneself into the mind of the other, to establish an empathetic equilibrium between the character of the portrayer and that of the portrayed; this closeness between model and image taker defines HERSTORY. The exhibition at FOTOHOF is the first comprehensive presentation of this self-referential images – revealing the artistic approach in Kalters work.
Marion Kalter, *1953 in Salzburg, studied art history at Mount Holyoke College, Massachusetts, USA; Marion lives and works in Paris and Chabenet, France.
