artist statement

astrid bryder is creating an interaction between photographic artwork and the viewer and she is challenging figurative documentary photography through the incomprehension generated by an unrecognizable motif and thereby questioning how society perceives photography. she is very interested in the general understanding of photography as something reality-related and recognizable. based on that, she attempts to balance on the border between something real and something unreal that becomes abstract. she creates her abstract compositions both with and without the camera and tries to redefine photography by working from ‘level zero’.
