werden (2021)

'Werden' is Kristina Feldhammer's (aka Krist Mort) latest book of analog photography. It comprises a careful curation of self portraits created, and hand printed in the darkroom, between 2015 and 2020 in Austria. Along with this collection of darkroom works, the book also contains previously unreleased sketches, a foreword by Jonathan Berman as well as an artist bio by Isabel Biederleitner.

The Self in motion, in transformation, a state of emerging, of ceasing. A state of becoming; something, and nothing. The German word ‘werden’ describes this constant state of transformation and captures the essence of something that is about to become. By contrast, a photograph can only ever show us what has been. It is fixed, motionless. And so this collection of photographic self portraits is also a collection of perpetual Becomings, frozen in time.

24 x 28 cm, offset printing, 220 colour pages on 130g mat Arctic Paper. Cover is on 300g thick Ensocoat SBS board, mat coated. Limited Edition of 500 copies.

INLUMAEH (2014)

Inlumaeh relates to the connection and interaction of light and darkness. Where there is illumination a shadow is always cast and therefore all shadows originate in light. It is with these singular precepts that Kristina Feldhammer tackles her photographic work. Focusing on the darker and more somber aspects of life, as well as the beautiful and fragile side of death and the unknown, her pictures showcase the cycle of death and rebirth and also the cycle of creation and destruction, perpetually moving on in its oppressive beauty. Beauty and death, light and darkness, invocations and spirits are the foundations on which she creates her evocative imagery.

Gold foil debossing on textured hardbound cover 90 pages of color and b/w photographs, matte varnish. Book format: 7×10″
