The French photographer Jeanloup Sieff moves masterfully through the genres of nature and landscape, fashion and nude, establishing himself as one of the great talents in the history of photography. The exhibition Shadow Lines offers a comprehensive and personal perspective of Sief’s oeuvre. A collection of 48 photographs reflects on the photographer as an artist who has not only chosen to utilise the wide-angle lens to achieve a cinematic approach, but also as one who challenges the limits of black and white photography through an unusual play of light and shadow.
Jeanloup Sieff, Shadow Lines, until 16 December, Galerie 36, Berlin.
