A wave that starts forming, a slowly melting drop of ice – each have nothing to do with our existence, while at the same time belonging to the sum of all of its parts. The present of the past directly inscribed on light-sensitive paper and set in a frame. Eva-Maria Raab captures what is fleeting and uses cyanotypes to ask questions about the essence of nature and its transience. Her photographic experiments are an attempt to capture the soul of nature in a direct and pure manner. For her lake prints, she moistened light-sensitive paper at night with water from Lake Attersee and let it literally blur into photographic images of the lake. In her ice prints as well, object and image merge into one another as traces of ice floes and photographs of them overlap in the picture. Raab's series re-turning around, was created on the Greek island of Ithaca. She uses traces of seawater to create pathways and islands on paper which she outlines with golden ink - a reference to the ‘Odyssey’ and the search for our inner homeland.
