Photography by Katrin Korfmann

March 22, 2012

Katrin Korfmann photographs from a unique cinematic perspective that perches above the subject. Her pictures emphasize the spatial experience of the passage of time, using the abstracted back drops to frame the figures revealing their unique garments and rituals in frozen moments of movement. Similar to looking out of a high-rise building in a large city, Korfmann's placement of the lens provides a unique gaze that  opens up new perspectives through disorientation and careful inclusion and exclusion of certain details.
