Jaroslav Rössler (1902–1990) was one of the most important Czech avant-garde photographers and his work from the first half of the 1920s ranked amongst the earliest and most radical examples of the application of Abstract and Constructivist principles to photography. Rössler started as an assistant to František Drtikol, but quickly abandoned the pictorial style of his renowned teacher and began to focus on minimalist details of actual objects and on geometric paper cut-outs, abstract compositions with shadow and light, inventive photomontages, and Constructivist shots of modern engineering and architecture. In 1923 he was invited to join Devětsil, and thus became the only photographer in the most famous Czech avant-garde group of artists and writers. During his Paris sojourn, 1927–35, he worked in several important studios, mainly making modern photographs for advertisements, while continuing to experiment freely on his own. Later, after a long hiatus, he returned to experimentation in the mid-1950s, and once again contributed to the latest artistic trends in a truly original way. Extract

“I don’t know much about my philosophy which is still being defined, but to tell the truth I don’t think it really needs to be defined. I mainly use the pinhole camera, a technique that I have used now for over 20 years. The cameras and hand holes are all made by me, this is one of the reasons why I decided to use this technique since it allows me to build my own visual space/photo space in full freedom and to use all the sensitive materials provided by polaroid and fuji, from photo paper to digital. I can also use long exposure times and see life and things from a different point of view, giving me time to think and understand better… The common theme of my photos is often the journey, where the photos can be used as a clipboard memory, hence on returning from my travels I can re-elaborate my ideas and seek common themes to link the images together.” Luca Baldassari

“I am a very personal and original photographer, whose working-method aims to transfer in my images the feelings I experienced while shooting. I am above all an atmosphere photographer. My atmosphere captures results from a subtle mixture between fuzzy zones and perfectly sharp ones.” – Fernand Hick

My pre-occupation as an artist is with creating highly distilled, contemplative nuances of feeling in print. I aim to compose images – drawn from nature and memory – of stark yet tactile forms, held momentarily out of balance; forms disappearing into immaterial shadows and configurations of form in spatial settings, undergoing transformation. I’m fascinated by forms appearing like projections onto surfaces, fragile and immaterial articulations, punctuated by the interplay of light and shade. Re-discovering delicate forms in space at distances defined by rhythm and structure, are of interest to me.

My objective is to create a state of suspension of individual elements, caught in a complex of layers with deceptive simplicity. The creation of these images is intuitive in nature. The creative process is ongoing, with every intuition, reflection and configuration, pre-figuring another possibility. The printing process is an integral part of my working process. The separation and building up of layers, multiple overprinting, the use of inks of differing viscosities – these modifications inform the work as it evolves. The tactile qualities of print-making, the depth and richness of surface, are crucial. – [Artists Statement]
