Dress of Light

Share:

From 26 April to 20 July 2013, the gallery of Petra Rietz in Berlin will be showing ‘Dress of Light’, an exhibition of nude photographs by Heinrich Heidersberger.

The images were created back in 1949. When ‘Stern’ magazine published five of the nude photographs, they caused outrage and sensation in post-war Germany.

Heidersberger obscured his light sources with home-made covers, so that graphic patterns would be projected onto his subjects’ naked bodies. Using simple methods, Heidersberger conjured exquisite ‘dresses’ made of nothing but shadow and light.
