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

“Why black and white?” I think it’s because I grew up in a black-and-white world. Television, movies and the news were all in black and white. My heroes were in black and white and even the nation was segregated into black and white. My work’s an extension of the world that I grew up.” Cole Thompson

We all may share the same sensual image of the environment. What we perceive, feel, and
reflect upon, however, may be as unique as every single person… ~ Charlotte Thoemmes

Natural environments and urbanized areas inspire my images, in which I present questions that range from identity to mortality. In my imagery, I attempt to explore places where a dialog emerges between the inner world of people and the environment . There I intuitively create my dream-like visions, make the unseen apparent, paint with light and shadow. In my images I’m not trying to frame my own subjective construction of reality, but rather try to animate the recipient to question their own perception. I want my images to provide a space where the viewers can project their own associations.

Experimental working techniques, either in-camera or in the darkroom often lead me to push the boundaries of photography. I create images with multiple exposures and selective haziness to capture feelings of loss and transformation through time. By painting on the light-sensitive paper or directly on the negative I create additional layers that were unseen by my eye, but felt emotionally. Photography provides possibilities to capture memories of the physical and the emotional state of people and places.
