Limited and numbered edition

The acoustic images in the "Love Affair" series are photographs taken with a smartphone camera and enlarged unprocessed to the appropriate format.

Photographic concept:
Markus Schaub's photo series started in 2017 and all pictures were taken with his iPhone 6. The subjects are enlarged to the respective format according to the 4:3 image ratio of the smartphone, unedited. "For me, the smartphone camera is like a brush that I can use as a simple instrument. This gives me the opportunity to concentrate on the motifs and not to be dependent on elaborate photographic technology". The pictures taken show mirrored rooms, landscapes and atmospheric pictorial content, which, through their poetic play of colours and forms, allow a diverse reading.

Markus Schaub says the following about the concept: "Using a smartphone to find images that are only available for a short time, for example when I am very close to an object or take a photo through something, is a joyful discovery of the otherwise invisible. In addition, the images are in deliberate contrast to the selfie shots otherwise taken with smartphone cameras, which are produced in dizzying numbers every day all over the world". Markus Schaub calls the pictures a hybrid of photography and painting, which is why he chose the term photopaintings for the series. Since all works tell their own but not conclusive atmospheric and poetic story, they are also suitable as a combination of several pictures that interact with each other.

The Artedition of PHOTOPAINTINGS "Love Affair" is an exclusive selection with a limited edition of 50 copies. All works are numbered and signed.
