Birne Helene / Holger Niehaus

The book Birne Helene by German photographer Holger Niehaus gives the same feeling as walking through a high standard architectural building in the thirties! The scale, the dimensions of rooms and corridoors breath the elegant white of the rooms. The white pages in the book become almost as important as the beautiful still lifes which are reminding us to Morandi, Kandinsky and even Donald Judd. Composition and colour in close harmony. In the book Friedrich Meschede wrote: ‘One could say that a circle has been completed: paintings from art history provided the inspiration for the compositions, while the staging of objects and their inalienable pictorial qualities have led Holger Niehaus’s works back to a ‘painterly’ form of photography. In this medium and through its means of depiction, what is seen develops its own intrinsic pictorial merit.’
