Press Release

/
For the European Month of Photography EMOP 2020 and the exhibition at Galerie Gilla Lörcher, the photographer Ute Schendel has selected a series of vintage print portraits from the 70s and 80s. They show prominent personalities from the world of theater, film and literature with whom the photographer was / is in close contact. Back then, Schendel experimented with a sulfur toning technique on Agfa P90 paper. This painterly component gave the 'realistic' portraits an expressive power. After a series of attempts, she left it at that and turned to documentary photography in the future. The vintage print portraits remained in the photographer's studio archive and were rediscovered by her in 2019.

13 large-format sulfur tonings (each 45 x 60 cm) by: Fernando Arabal, Mauricio Kagel, Walter Stöhrer, Samuel Beckett, Ezra Gerhardt, George Tabori, Georg Herold and others will be presented. These pictures are complemented by black and white portraits (silver gelatine prints, also mostly vintage) by Gisèle Freund, Lee Strasberg, Heiner Müller, Herbert Achternbusch, Einar Schleef, Peter Kurzeck, Miriam Cahn, R.A. Penck, Kasper König, Joanna Jones and others.
