Böttcher, Petra
Born 1957 Cuxhaven, lives and works in Efringen-Kirchen.
«Rheinhafen, Weil am Rhein (Rhine port, Weil am Rhein)».
Pinhole photography, double exposure on Ilfochrome. Signed lower right on the passepartout. Dated 1997 lower middle and titled.
H 20, W 20 cm (passepartout). Original frame.
In digital times, the pinhole camera seems almost like an archaic rarity. Petra Böttcher's pinhole photographs take the viewer back to the beginnings of the photographic technique. But what at first appears to be a restriction to minimal design possibilities is precisely the attraction for the artist based in Efringen-Kirchen. «Her pictures are often composed of several exposures that are pushed horizontally into one after the other. The picture parts merge - without a visible beginning or recognisable end.» from: Peter Olpe, Out of Focus, Lochkamerafotografie und Lochkameras, Salenstein 2012, p. 112.
Authentication: We would like to thank the artist for the kind remarks and for the authentication, via e-mail, based on photos, 06.10.2023.
Provenance: purchased at the Galerie im Schürli, Niedereggen, in 1998; since then private collection Dreiländereck.
