Anna & Bernhard Blume “SX 70/Polaroids 1975-2000”


Anna and Bernhard Blume have been making art together for nearly four decades.

The couple are based in Cologne, Germany and their work has been exhibited and critically lauded in their own country and abroad.

The photographs, organized chronologically, starts a bit like a new relationship, awkward, novel, with a good deal of nudity and playful romping about with vegetables. They also feature neat parlor tricks with light and post-production on the stills to create simple illusions. The result is ludic, banal and vulnerable.
