In Still Air - in Dana Stölzgen's new book time appears to stand still. This happens in the landscapes, close-ups and interiors, as well as in the portraits of young girls, adults and old women. In truth, time is elastic – expanding into the past and into the future. In perfect moments, the elderly feel young, adults feel like children once more – without remembering precisely.
Of love and suffering, desire and loss
Immortal young girls know little about the life that will one day lie behind them. Of love and suffering, desire and loss. They look forward. The elderly look back, and those in the middle of their lives look in both directions. Within this time vortex, the different generations reflect each other, and our reflections and memories get mixed together in our way of observing the world. Göran Gnaudschun writes about this in his poetic text Mirror that accompanies the book.
