An introduction to the first cycle

An essay of Barbara Glindemann, art historian to the fourth exhibition of the hamburger photographers Lutz P. Kayser, with the title „symbol – part I“ in the bookstore Sautter and Lackmann.

Lutz P. Kayser introduces in this first cycle interpretations in the form of series and single photographs on the subject „Nearness – distance“. 22 Prints are shown at canvas: Size 35 x 35 inches and 35 x 23 inches in the portrait format, horizontal format or squarely.

In this short introduction I would like to speak of photographic symbols and the especially atmospheric kind of the expression photograph of Kayser. Just his symbolic photos have opened Kayser the doors to the famous agencies. I will begin with some remarks about the subject „Nearness – bring near to distance“ and then with the help of the following three leading questions me to the genre of the symbolic photograph and before this background venture some careful interpretations: 1. What is a symbol? 2. How does a photographic symbol originate? 3. How does Kayser generate photographic symbols by means of specific unsharpness? The subject of the issued photographs confronts the concepts Nearness and Distance with each other and produces a contrast. This antithetische configuration is of use Kayser for the photographic play with the observation of the world. Nearness and distance can be separated neither of each other, nor are actually possible to experience both at the same time. If we look at things at close range, we lose the distance. If we look at things from the distance, we lose the nearness. The distance brings us an overview and clarity. The nearness can make the border between space and body fluently. The beauty of structure and small details becomes suddenly visible. It is in such a way as if one could look into the things. In the area between nearness and distance the play begins with reality and fiction. Penetrating into smaller and smaller worlds.
