Intrigued by psychological constellations, Stefanie Schweiger can empathize and sympathize, can lose herself without getting up too close, rediscover herself as she takes a step back to get a clearer view. What she sees has become part of her reality. A moment in time so subtle yet so serious that it reveals traces of the very essence of a person. You can feel, hear, almost smell what you see in her works and therein lies their beauty, a finely woven atmosphere which allows the viewer inside. Not as a voyeur but as the photographer's companion on her journey, able to witness a moment captured by her keen, yet serene and delicate powers of perception. Esther Gallodoro
