Sebastian Lemm’s upcoming show features a body of work called Schattenseite, which means dark side or down side in reference to the process that results in eerie hyper-realistic photography. Lemm uses a combination of techniques that include 6x7 film, digital scanning and image editing to see his ideas become creations that are at once abstract and yet very specific. Partially double-exposed pictures become portraits of branches that are vibrant compositions with much movement and force.
Artist: Sebastian Lemm
Schattenseite opens at the David Weinberg Gallery in Chicago on February 29 and runs through April 12.
