Frontal encounters – fleeting, unexpected, direct. Photographs of people up close and immediate. Stefan Enders dissects moments of reality. From this fleeting encounter a moment of closeness of the most intensive kind is born. Stefan Enders takes his photographs in streets and squares, in public spaces. They are not portraits in the classical sense, but snapshots. Using his camera’s wide angle lens, Enders comes within centimetres of situations and moments of everyday life. Again and again, his photographs become, as it were, an intuitive means for cutting out a »breath« of reality. The results are unusual portraits of people in movement, often in panorama format, in hard black and white. Stefan Enders’ large format pictures are uncommon and uncustomary. They are both expression and documentation of a situation, and yet they point beyond this, confronting us with questions about life and our own human existence. Although originating from different countries and different culture areas, the works are a coherent, comprehensive cycle describing the photographer’s way of looking at the world and his search for it.
