German artist Stefanie Schneider (*1968) is working with a Polaroid camera, as she loves the faded colours and unpredictable results of photos made with Polaroid films long out of date. Stefanie, who is living in Berlin, goes to Los Angeles, California for 6 months every year to work on her photography and film projects.
‘The Village Motel-Sunset’ by Stefanie Schneider, 2009
For me, as I haven’t been to California yet, California is a figure of imagination, a big ‘film set’ for Hollywood movies. I feel that Stefanie’s photos show me some of the locations/ ‘film sets’ in between the scenes of the film, when nothing is happening. She catches something subtle and delicate about the empty urban spaces and the Californian landscape.
Stefanie Schneider not only makes traditional photos, for the last decade she has been making installations combining photography, video, sound and text. See for example Stefanie Schneider’s lesbian ‘polariod movies‘Till death do us part’ on Youtube.com.
