Her philosophy is to genuinely integrate life as a living ‘now’ in her art. Poetic view, still live art
Since 2003, the series „in a room“ deals with identity, home and reflections of herself in a reduced composed room.
On this page you will see an overview of Eva´s approach to her different projects. As a photographer, she goes two ways.
Firstly, the way of non-profit work. She calls this her documentary political photography. Parallel to this, her second way focuses on contemporary art projects, which are just as important to her.
I believe Eva is a very intelligent and hard working artist who deserves whatever support may be available. She possesses a very inquiring mind, which she is always quite willing to turn to the issues of the human condition.
Because of her diverse cultural and personal background, I think she adds a welcome note of photographic concern to a world in which many others are almost exclusively production and market oriented. At the same time, she has the ability to keep her inquiries and opinions firmly grounded in the real world.
As a photographer, Eva clearly demonstrates sound artistic capabilities. She is a challenging photographer, one who raises the level of perception by asking probing questions and seeking to go beyond normal expectations.
Driven by passion, her art of photography is her way of communicating with the outside world. Eva Horstick-Schmitt moves the hearts of her audience and especially encourages young woman to free themselves from social constraints, making their own dreams and ideals come true.
After all, as she understands so well from back at the beginning of her road, true photography and true art is about the future and starts in that place called hope.
