Tina Dietz - Photo Exhibition "From the Diary of a Flaneuse"
June 25 To August 28, 2022
Tina Dietz studied landscape design and artistic photography. She has been working as a
freelance photographer and artist since 1992, having created inter/national exhibitions
throughout Europe and the Americas.
“Photography is my search for truth, and serves as a guide in a world that often seems
complicated enough to me. I’m interested in what’s obviously there, but not closely
examined. It’s like a parallel world that I enter in the meadows, ditches and neighboring
gardens, and yet it’s the reality for which I keep getting on my knees.“
Tina Dietz gets on her knees in the truest sense of the word, she photographs the flowers on the spot, with her black trousers as a backdrop, without any further staging or aids. The result is macro shots of unexpectedly beautiful structures: great shapes, colors, arrangements of petals and stamens. The variety and perfection of these structures, only becoming apparent to the viewer, through a very specific perspective. All of this can be received in different ways – at first you can enjoy it in a hedonistic way – it is a great viewing experience. In fact, it is also more: it represents the artistic process of transforming reality – the creation of ones very own cosmos through the medium of art. Within it contains a message of great relevance for our society. What is presented here is nature – a system of high efficiency, in which each element plays a well-defined role in a larger context, but also a system that creates configurations of incredible aesthetics. Seeing these flowers in their delicate and sensitive beauty, the level of brutality with which we are currently threatening nature becomes immediately palpable.
