  • Catalogue Essay


    Bettina von Zwehl has built an international reputation for her subtle and unnerving photographic portraits. Her concise series of images are highly controlled both in terms of their minimalist aesthetic and the exacting conditions she imposes on her subjects. Von Zwehl photographs them as they wake from deep sleep, hold their breath, recover from physical exertion, are drenched in rain or listen intently to music in a darkened room; orchestrating a climate in which the sitters relinquish control of the way they are represented. The portraits reveal not the conscious projection of an identity but a space between the subject’s private and thoughtful world and their public appearance.
