At 29, Liz is the youngest member of the Street Photography Collective Luxembourg. She has a Master’s degree in the study of religion (Religionswissenschaft) and these studies influence her view of the world and therefore also her approach to photography. Her photos are usually very spontaneous and intuitive. Photography allows her to share her sensitive and attentive observations with others. Many of her pictures are taken with the phone; the composition, the story, and above all the emotions of a photo are more important to Liz than the technical component. For her, a camera or a lens are instruments of intentional alienation. Her goal: to find (again) the beautiful and extraordinary in the everyday, the so-called “normal”.
In this exhibition, Liz exclusively shows pictures she has taken with her phone. She has chosen street shots that humorously reflect the dreariness, the loneliness, and the humanity of our society. The photos show details of the ordinary that often pass us by in our fast-paced lives without us noticing them. With her pictures, she pleads for a more mindful engagement with our (social) environment.
Most of the photos Liz exhibits were taken between 2020 and 2022 in Luxembourg City.
