Astrid Lowack’s photographs are experimental mirrors of the emotional world. They visualize consciousness and unconsciousness, abysses and metamorphoses. In her works, fears and apocalyptic chaos appear in a new perspective, and so does paradisiacal equilibrium. The elements Lowack deploys to bring about these effects are light, movement, and water. Through her work, we see them as the driving forces of life, relentlessly bringing about change and reflecting our innermost being—our feelings and experiences. Her snapshots remain thereby constant imaginative challenges to human perception as Lowack explores unknown ways of thinking and worlds of feeling and immerses herself through her photographic works in the individual experiences of humankind. This volume reproduces a selection of Lowack’s most important work and will be the perfect introduction for those new to her photography.
