Street Photography par excellence by New York City based photographer Nina Welch-Kling
The German-born New York photographer Nina Welch-Kling is one of the new voices in Women Street Photography. With her latest work Duologues, Welch-Kling adds an artistic aspect to the genre: by combining two photographs as fixed diptychs, she creates a visual dialogue between two images that open up new dimensions to the viewer. Photographs taken within the blink of an eye unfold through their pairing: a wealth of connections, meanings and aesthetic relations. For the first time, these unique compositions can be enjoyed within the quiet realm of a book’s pages. As Jim Casper, founder of LensCulture, observes: »These diptychs produce visual echoes that evoke new ideas, new meanings, new connections—encouraging viewers to energize their own ways of seeing.«
