Johannes Schwartz

The Netherlands, Amsterdam Van Zoetendaal Collections

Johannes Schwartz (Munich 1970) makes photographic still lifes, documenting the absence of people who leave their tracks behind in nature, architecture and interiors. The photos are abstractions, occasionally with a surrealistic effect, alluding to what was or what was left behind. Schwartz, whose earlier works – including Gordijnen (2002) and a special edition for Marks of Honour (2006) – ideally suit the exhibition concept, has created new work especially for the Unseen presentation.
