Lisa Klapstock
"Lisa Klapstock's photographic practice challenges visual perception of everyday urban environments. This splendid first monograph, illustrated with dozens of colour plates, presents several series produced from the late 1990s to today. Living Room documents the hidden life of urban back lanes. Threshold - scenes shot through holes in backyard fences - reveals views that are invisible to the naked eye. Ambiguous Landscapes juxtaposes stark landscapes with and without the human figure (Klapstock herself). While the work is highly formalized and richly textured, Klapstock's overriding concern is the gray area between private and public and how, as both artist and woman, one inhabits that space. In English and French." -- Publisher's website.
