Familiarity with Things

Share:

For the self-taught photographer Aenne Biermann (1898 – 1933), the camera was a means of relating to her immediate surroundings. From the mid-1920s onwards, she dedicated herself to capturing everyday situations from unusual perspectives. Even though Aenne Biermann worked in relative isolation from the avant-garde movements that took place in larger cities, her work was represented in all major modernist-photography exhibitions from 1929 onwards. Her oeuvre, created within just a few short years – Aenne Biermann passed away following an illness in 1933 – is now regarded as one of the most important contributions to the New Vision and New Objectivity movements.

In 1931, the German publication Das Magazin wrote: “Here is a photographer who shows everyday objects in an entirely new light. The much-revered New Objectivity becomes entirely un-daunting at her tender hand, as she gently touches upon the things she sees.”
