Gap in the Real

With Photographs by Bianca Brunner and essays by Katharina Ammann, Brian Dillon, and Tan Wälchli

Bianca Brunner is a young Swiss photographer whose work has gained considerable international recognition and acclaim.  Brunner’s haunting photos—for which she uses neither artificial light nor flashes—captivate viewers with their imaginative character, depicting models and self-constructed sets that seem as fragile and ephemeral as dreams. Bianca Brunner: Gap in the Real is the first book dedicated solely to Brunner’s work. It features in full-color reproductions of approximately fifty of Brunner’s never-before-published photographs, as well as critical essays by curator Katharina Ammann, Brian Dillon, and Tan Wälchli.

Reviews

“Bianca Brunner’s enigmatically simple photographic compositions reflect on the power of sudden, momentary absorption to arrest and change our experience of daily life—characters and sets embodying a hypnotic aesthetic akin to that which may be found in, say, a painting of a mostly empty interior by Wilhelm Hammershoi, or in the subversive sense of memory and possession in a surrealist film. The young Swiss photographer’s contemplative images of individuals looking as anonymous and abandoned as the interior and exterior environments in which they are framed are remarkable for their uncanny, almost mystically Spartan demeanor.”
