An Interview with Stefan Heyne: Die Wirklichkeit der Fotografie

Posted by (PF) at 7:00 ...

What we see in the outer corner of the eyes stays always hidden in the blurred. If someone directs the view toward it, the eye focuses automatically and the perception changes. Stefan Heyne, scenic designer and photographer, places this volatile thing into the centre. But he neglects to readjust the sharpness and makes visible what we would see hardly ever otherwise.

Stefan Heyne, born 1965 in Brandenburg, studied scenic design at the Art Academy Berlin. He lives and works in Berlin.

Stefan Heyne’s solo show “Blind Spot” at Kaune, Sudendorf in Cologne runs from May 30th to July 11th 2009. The opening night is on Friday, 29th May 2009, at 7 pm. His current solo show “The Noise” in Brandenburg / Havel runs until July 13th.

Translate the German interview by Google:

Peter F. (PF): Stefan, du hast ja eigentlich Bühnenbild studiert. Wann hast du die Fotografie für dich entdeckt und wie kam es, dass die Fotografie für dich ein zentrales Ausdrucksmittel wurde?

Stefan Heyne (SH): Der Übergang vom Bühnenbild zur Fotografie war fließend; anfänglich habe ich meine Bühnenbilder fotografiert aber dabei gemerkt, wie schlecht sich so was mit den Mitteln der Fotografie abbilden lässt, wie subjektiv und ungeeignet die Fotografie für dokumentarische Zwecke ist. Dadurch ausgelöst, hat mich immer mehr interessiert, was die Fotografie im Eigentlichen ausmacht. So entstanden ab 2002 erste intensivere fotografische Arbeitsphasen, bei denen ich gemerkt habe, dass die Fotografie gegenüber dem Bühnenbild das besser geeignete Mittel ist, um wesentliche Bilder zu machen und die Fragen um die es mir geht, stellen zu können.
