Luisa is a young german photographer living and working in Vienna, Austria. Her work is an introspective exploration of her subconscious mind depicting past memories and visual associations.
Luisa is inspired by books, films and the interaction with other creative people: “… everything we do (reading, watching, eating) influences our subconscious mind. What I find very inspiring are books (e.g. by Kobo Abe or Banana Yoshimoto), movies (e.g. by Roy Andersson), exhibitions and especially the company of other creative people. Never underestimate the influence of the people you surround yourself with.”
The pictures presented here are part of her book “Interference”, beautifully composed by only Polaroid images and introduced by Luisa to us: “Interference is structured intuitively and could be read as a journey through the subconscious mind. The atmosphere conveyed is not concrete and thus providing space for own projections. I think that’s one of the strengths of the work. That’s why I don’t like to explain my images - to quote Louise Bourgeois: ‘A work of art has to stand by itself’.“
