Eva Horstick-Schmitt / Eva Maria Horstick Photographer

Diese Seiten geben Einblicke in verschiedene Projekte und Photoserien von Eva Horstick-Schmitt
Bewusst entzieht sich Eva mit ihren vielschichtigen Projekten gewollt dem Schubladendenken mancher Zeitgenossen.
Ihr ist es wichtig Bilderwelten zu fühlen.
Alle Arbeiten der NO MODELS Serie ( 1987-2017), sowie meine anderen Fotografien
sind unretuschiert und so fotografiert wie sie sind.

Entgegen der Industrie von Manipulation ein Statement.
Seit 1992 fotografierte ich ebenso auf alten Industriebrachen, die damals noch nicht
En Vogue waren. Ich kletterte über Zäune und erstellte u.a. Serien mit Frauen auf Zechen und Kokereien. Ausgestellt im Hoesch Museum 2010.


Stille und Einsamkeit prägen das Gefühl für Räume und Situationen.
Das Bild der Frau in der Gesellschaft sind u.a. Themen, die Eva Horstick-Schmitt
seit 2002 mit ihren Ausstellungen ebenso hinterfragt, wie die Situation der aktuellen politischen Strömungen.

Die Serie „ in a room „ befasst sich seit 2003 mit ihrer eigenen Identität, Heimat und der Reflektion von
Erlebtem in einem stark reduziert angelegten Raum
Die Sexualisierung der Gesellschaft und Reduzierung des Selbst auf Sex liegt Eva fern.
"Sex sells" everything ist nicht ihre
Art zu leben.

Neben diesen Arbeiten entstanden Fotoserien im Ruhrgebiet.

In the works of Eva Horstick-Schmitt, the need for communication and understanding, also in terms of social differences, plays an important role. She raises the question of authenticity within her protagonists. She explores the unretouched ‘being’ which - given the glossy industry that surrounds us - is often no longer perceived. Examples of her work are: "unretouched - families in the area" and the project "daughters" with interviews and portraits on the subject of future. The artist focuses on individual and social ‘being’ against the backdrop of social and cultural differences. It’s to "plunge and to breathe Eva’s pictures", as a collector of her work explains his impression. The daily forgotten spaces, history behind rooms / women / situations, interest her as well as the beautiful appearance on the surface. Unretouched Photoart.
Her night shots, among others from Paris, London, Berlin, Tel Aviv and NYC, move the people in the background. A meditative silence arises in the long-term exposures in major cities which she captures since 2007 up to today during her travels around midnight. A series in which the night plays a special role, she calls ‘Null Uhr Nachtaktiv’ (Zero o`clock night active). The noises of people and machines that normally take advantage of the urban space, she consciously fades out. As in her series "photo meets manga" it’s about the soft sounds, thoughtful situations and silent rooms that take place in the interior and exterior.
Since 2003, the series "in a room" deals with identity, homeland and the reflection of things seen in a greatly reduced space.
When Eva turned ten, she received her first camera for Christmas. It was her only wish.
When she turned sixteen, Eva took her first two-year dual working/learning apprenticeship in a photo studio where she also learned how to develop her own
photos. After several years of working as a photographer, Eva worked as a fashion show choreographer and director for more than thirteen years. In 2000, she studied photo-design and communication-design next to her full-time work schedule.
Since her diploma in 2002 with her project „Station Prizren“ in Kosovo, she has been working on her exhibitions and art projects.
Eva: „Art is a process of renewal for me. Do not enter retracted paths and discover new perspectives.
