From June 21 to July 7, 2015, the Haus der Wirtschaft in Stuttgart is happy to present the "Isla Negra" exhibition of works by Helga and Christian von Alvensleben. 52 new photographs, printed in large-format on classic, silver gelatine paper, will be on display.
Impressions captured without artificial light
The photo essay talks about Lanzarote, a sparse, hot, black island and its inhabitants. It is an island that was formed in ancient time as a result of violent tectonic upheavals and extreme volcanic activity. The search for the island's primordial peculiarities led to a self-contained series. It includes pictures of cliffs, plants, the sky and the water; portraits of fishermen and their wives, and the architecture of the villages. Simple and impressive, Helga and Christian von Alvensleben capture their impressions without any use of artificial light.
