In Barbara Probst’s photographs, the subject of the work becomes the photographic moment of exposure itself. Using a radio-controlled release system, she simultaneously triggers the shutters of several cameras pointed at the same scene from various viewpoints. The resulting sequences of images suspend time and stretch out the split second.
Probst was born in Munich. She has exhibited in galleries and museums in Europe and North America including the Kunstverein Cuxhaven and Kunstverein Schwerte and the Museum of Contemporary Photography. She recently participated in After the Fact at the Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin. She lives and works in New York and Munich.
