In the photographs of Michael Schmid the motifs are unmistakable.
His subjects are often objects of everyday life: a lamp, a stove, a rubber glove, etc. These “objects of experience” (Krauss) are isolated in the center of the picture space, where nothing distracts their presence.
The photographs contain a definite concentration on the essentials, whereby an interior – which we should never lose sight of when we look at photographs – is here only on the surface, in the “prominent place of an understanding about the one that is given to it Media conditions “(seal). In this thin layer, light and chemistry are condensed into one image.
