| Fascination and aesthetics—bodies in motion
For Regina Schmeken , the depiction of motion is a focal point of her artistic work. Her serial photographs concentrate on the crucial moment between standstill and motion in dance, soccer, pole vaulting, or fencing. The black-and-white photographs give the trained bodies of the participants a sculptural quality that is intensified by the carefully selected framing and composition as well as the elaborate lighting. Oliver Bierhoff, former national all-star and manager of the German men’s soccer team, was surprised by Schmeken’s special view of “his” discipline, which led to a collaborative project: from early 2011 onward, the photographer accompanied the national team to international games, including the 2012 European championships in Poland and the Ukraine. This publication documents the men’s encounter and play with the ball as if it were choreography—captured from an impressive perspective.
