“Annelies Strba has taken the lead in recent European photography. Her photography materializes the art of perception. Pictures of her home and family keep a highly idiosyncratic record of memories, which startles outsiders with its universality: intimate domesticity, house, kitchen, sleeping children. Her composition in this publication of 290 photographs confronts the intimacy of private life not only with places of catastrophe and horror, like Kobe, Hiroshima, Chernobyl, Auschwitz, but also with melancholy, mysterious landscapes and impressionistic pictures of pure beauty.”
