Dieter Kiessling

people in mirrors

The photographer Dieter Kiessling (*1957) creates portraits that address the relationship between photographer and person portrayed in a powerful and expressive way. His approach, however, differs fundamentally from that of classic portrait photography: the person opposite becomes a person parallel. The photographer and the person portrayed stand side by side and look at each other in a mirror. By means of this inversion, he not only makes the preconditions of the medium visible. He also portrays himself in the act of taking photos. The result are 100 precise and authentic double portraits, which can be viewed in the new publication.
