Photography, my photography, is reality - like the recording of an invisible story, of a private tale, a secret map of feelings. It is the metaphor of a journey, the dawn of a new perception and a transformation of vision. Ultimately, it is a confession. It may well be true that change occurs when we start to be what we are, not when we try to be what we are not.
That is the way it has been for me. Now I know.

  • The Present is an introspective moment of great intensity on the significance of the present time. The iPhone is an object from which to transcend; to find a rising sun and a primeval fire, but also the light of the contemporary world. Both present and past find a precise location in a single point. The photographic sequence leads our eye towards abstraction.

  • Transition conveys a voyage primarily of the spirit that extends beyond the mere representation of the symbol of a pyramid, capturing solely its sense of threshold as a boundary between earth and sky. This stark work reveals the artist's wish to record her own spirituality through photography of the world.

  • Eden communicates an apparition, a vision of a starry sky, all based on the random observation of an apple. Niedermair's eye focuses insistently on the object, delving so deeply into the detail as to modify our perception of it, bringing about a degree of abstraction that generates figures which are images of infinity.

  • Dust marks the beginning of this new period of research. It is no coincidence the work was conceived at the same time that the artist experienced the birth of her child. The symbol of the cross appears as a trace in the dust, inducing us to reflect deeply on life and death as well as suffering as a moment of catharsis and regeneration. The photographic sequence informs our understanding, from darkness to light, in a circular process.
