In her last publication A Trilogy  (Kehrer, 2017), Jessica Backhaus has taken a path into abstraction, which is consistently continued here – with analog, photographic methods.

Cut out transparent paper reacts to the heat of intense sunlight, deforms, rises, and casts shadows. The photographer who arranged and staged these compositions becomes an astonished observer of events on which she has only limited influence, the documentarist of a visual experimental arrangement, a poetic choreography of intense colors in the sunlight.
