Subjective Photography II

In 1951, Otto Steinert organized Subjective Photography: International Exhibition of Modern Photography in Saarbrücken. The title of this first of three exhibitions (1951, 1954, 1958) became the name for an entire style. Steinert saw this new «subjective photography» as a counterpoint to standard-use photographs and documentary photography. The subjective way of seeing was defined as a general prerequisite for creative work and for the use of technical and photographic media. It involved a creative altering of reality via the creative power of the photographer, rather than his or her objective representation of actual events or situations. There were no set limits, either on the technical photographic experiments or in terms of subject matter. The 41 works presented in this exhibition show a first selection from the over 140 works in the comprehensive collection.
