Arnoldsche, 2005


out of stock

Frances and Elsie told their parents that they had watched elves close by while they were playing. With their father’s camera they managed to take highly authentic-looking photographs of themselves and the elves. It was only 50 years later, in the year 1917, that researchers at the University of Leeds in England discovered the images to be skilful photomontages.

The new works of the internationally acclaimed photographic artist Annelies Štrba look into the elf phenomenon – and she also presents mysterious natural figures.

The work of the Swiss photo and video artist Annelies Štrba convinces by its straightforward approach and emotional charge; it is her ‘inner perspective’ that captivates every observer. A small artist book, edition unknown. Bibliophile design with silk cover, Japanese binding with interleaves and silver-edged.
