“As a photography curator, I look at hundreds of pictures everyday, from art exhibitions to portfolios and Instagram feeds. This selection was for me a very intuitive process: I just went with the images that really caught my eye. I am particularly drawn to Oliver Schwarzwald’s dreamlike aesthetics and to Jenny Woods’ sophisticated representation of femininity. They are both, in my opinion, outstanding photographic artists. Yet I do believe all the images in this group have something in common. They are all an invitation to contemplation, to slow down for a moment and enjoy the simple act of letting your eyes drift over a beautifully composed photograph. My home is for me a space of relaxation so I like to surround myself with artworks that allow for a moment of purpose-free calm.”
“I would definitely hang Oliver Schwarzwald’s Ribbon River above my sofa. I love the nostalgic feeling and the subtle optimism implicit in this photograph. I would probably go with a natural wood frame just to highlight all the beautiful, contrasting textures captured in this image.”
