The French artist Sophie Ristelhueber (b. 1949, Paris) uses the medium of photography to study our reality - a reality that is entirely different from that intended by journalists and photo reporters. Ristelhueber's work often takes her to centres of conflict. She not merely presents reality, but through her work she studies the traces of human presence, constructive and destructive forces, and she raises questions concerning the observation and representation of the meaning of that which is photographed. As she exhibits her work, Ristelhueber chooses resolutely for a physical experience of the images, which is obvious from the size, reproduction technique and the manner of presentation.
