About the Artwork

Photographic montage, Hahnemühle fine art print on wood, edition 6+1. Firn is a form of snow that outlasts a defrosting period and increases its density over time. At the act of photographic self-portraiture I am the photographed and the photographer at the same time. I face myself. I am spatially separated from me by the camera. My ego is doubled in space as well as in time - or is it split? I recreate this duality of the trigger-pulling moment in the composition of the images.
