In the digital era, all seems instant, open and transparent. In photography, each image can be turned into another reality with a myriad of tools and tricks. In search of a new, inner reality, I encounter the mystery of simple objects. - B. Moser

Birgit Moser is a German photographer residing in Munich, since 2001 she has been engaged in photography producing a significant archive that over the years she has been showing in numerous solo and group exhibitions. Birgit Moser work is recognized in different countries, she was finalist in international competitions such as Celeste Prize Arte Laguna and Julia Cameron Award Gala.
.
Important for the aesthetic study and the conceptual research of Moser’s work is the experience of the travels and the places in which Moser lives over the years, from the USA to Mexico, from Europe to eastern countries such as Korea, Nepal, China , Japan, Vietnam etc .. in the work of this photographer emerges the influence that comes from Asian culture, manifested as a very close vision to zen philosophy. Moser images highlight all aspects of the natural world, they express the sensuality, the balance, and at the same time the dark side and the unknown material things. These images are primarily an opportunity to reflect on the more profound nature of things, express a vision of reality under which the most absolute value is found in the energy contained in everything that surrounds us, an energy made manifest through the medium of photoghraphy that well and above all expresses the power of light

L.A.: Hello Birgit, to start, how and when did you become interested in photography? And what characterized the evolution of your photography?

 

Birgit Moser: I have started taking photos as a child, with the cameras of my father. And I always continued to experiment. At the same I was also drawing, painting with oil or water colours.

 

L.A.: Is there any photographer that inspired you more than others?

 

Birgit Moser: There are several photographic points of view I like. I am deeply impressed with the German Bernd and Hilla Becher school and their way of seeing – architecture, science, landscapes, daily life. I like Andreas Gurskys landscapes, North Korea images. And on the other hand, I enjoy street photography, as eg from Steve McCurry.

L.A.: What do you like most about being a photographer?

 
Birgit Moser: I love adventure, exploration, getting a new view on things or a view on new things. This can be an extended trip to Asia or a trip into the mysteries of daily life here in Germany. I love finding images – some strike, some haunt, on the spur of the moment. And it is great to be there at just the right time to capture it.
 
L.A.: How do you choose what to photograph and when, what are you looking to capture?
 
Birgit Moser: Every day is different. On a quiet rainy day, my focus turns to rain washed windows, on a sunny summer I pull out my macro and take flower portraits, both on the spot and arranged settings. Out in the city streets, I capture the atmosphere with my camera, people, faces, street views. Architecture is a bit different, that can take time and preparation and is more planned.

L.A.: Can you take one of your works from those presents at LoosenArt Gallery and express a personal comment about meanings or concepts?

.

Birgit Moser: About the series interiors (chair, lamp, towel): In the digital era, all seems instant, open and transparent. In photography, each image can be turned into another reality with a myriad of tools and tricks. In search of a new, inner reality, I encounter the mystery of simple objects. Interiors, that turn into grand solo stars, symbols of the near past, witness of time’s journey, calling on memory – it can be an eighties lamp or a year-old towel, ready for use, yet estranged, mysterious in its setting. Outside objects can also develop a similar transcendent atmosphere, no matter if seen from inside or viewed directly outside. In particular, the view through the window sets scene for the outside, it adds a poetic twist, mirrors a special moment of tranquil transcendence.

.

L.A.: Hopes and projects for the future?

.

Birgit Moser: I would love to deep-dive into portraits more, develop some of my topics more and in more depth and catch the inspiration when time is ripe. The main goal clearly is to develop as an artists and take my art to the next level, step by step.
