About Betweens:
This exhibition explores states of transition in people, time, and places. In silhouettes, light and shade. The transition between accepted consciousness and a place apart. Between the real and the unreal.

Excerpt from the poem “The Hollow Men” by T.S.Eliot:

Between the idea
And the reality
Between the motion
And the act
Falls the Shadow
--------------------------
Between the conception
And the creation
Between the emotion
And the response
Falls the Shadow
--------------------
Between the desire
And the spasm
Between the potency
And existence
Between the essence
And the descent
Falls the Shadow



Anatoly Rudakov
This transitions, the “Betweens,” can be found in the abstract landscapes and city scenes of Anatoly Rudakov, Russian ­photographer and former cameraman (*1951). By moving his photo camera in a precise, yet very intuitive manner, Rudakov blurs reality and the distorts the documentary function of photography; and thereby shifts the witnessed images into a different place– a new level, a different piece of the puzzle of our mosaic of consciousness. His photographs resemble paintings and sudden dream sequences. Reality is transposed into something new. Rudakov’s photographs are shown around the world. He worked as camera man for Central TV Moscow and Soviet TV Bureau in London and was awarded prizes at International Photography Awards Los Angeles (2013) and International Fine Art Photography Award Paris (2014).

Stéphanie Bonn
The photographs of Stéphanie Bonn, French photographer (*1971) and recent Graduate of the Ostkreuz School, were taken at the world-famous Christian pilgrimage site of Lourdes, France. Stéphanie Bonn travelled to Lourdes several times from 2014 to 2015 and took unique documentary photographs at this famous religious site where miracles and transcendent phenomena are considered commonplace.
Her photo series captures the unreal atmosphere fostered in this place of fervent belief and worship.  She employs  the means of modern contemporary photography including spontaneous snapshot aesthetics and a bold use of flash.Her photo series was recently shown in Vice Magazine. She graduated at the Ostkreuz School class of Ute Mahler.
