BERLIN.- Camera Work presents Blaise Reutersward’s exhibition »Aktstudien und Deutsche Landschaften« started on August 24, 2013. The exhibition presents a selection of new large format nudes and landscape works.

»Aktstudien und Deutsche Landschaften« features selected photographs of German landscapes and nude portraits. While the nudes have been an ongoing focus for the past decade, Reutersward’s exploration of German landscapes ranging from the North Sea and Baltic coast to the Bavarian Alps, springs only from the past year. Forming a stark contrast at first when solely considering subject matter, it is Reutersward’s unique eye for composition and atmospheric palette that allows both series to enter into an harmonious dialogue. Both bodies of work aim to capture a sense of mystery that simmers underneath the illusion of perfect form and beauty. In this opposition, the flawless shape of the female body is mirrored in a landscape that seems to mark the ideal symbiosis of natural elements such as falling water and rock formations, for example. Both subjects embrace the notion of classical form and balance, yet they also serve as a reminder that perfection is a mere illusion. Be it in his portraits or landscapes, Reutersward is not interested in focusing solely on the surface. Instead, he offers his audience a glimpse of emotional depth. His subjects might be unapproachable physically, yet they appeal to our imagination – and because of that quality probably more so – and succeed in projecting a mysterious inner life or otherworldly reality.

Born in Stockholm in 1961, Blaise Reutersward is a renowned contemporary photographer. He has exhibited his work worldwide in numerous solo and group exhibitions over the last 18 years. »Fashion«, curated by CAMERA WORK in 2008, also presented works by Blaise Reutersward and was shown in Stockholm and Amsterdam, in addition to other cities. His photography also appears regularly in magazines such as »Vogue« and in connection with brands like Sonia Rykiel and Hermès. Blaise Reutersward lives and works in Stockholm.
