Josephine Binder’s photography acts as a mirror of her perception, functioning as reconciliation between her inner feelings and her external impressions. With her camera she manages to capture the precious memories and personal references of the people and places that surround her. These pictures tell stories about friendship, spontaneity and atmosphere.
Her analogue portraits testify to a deep intimacy between her and her subjects. With profound empathy and many years of experience behind and in front of the camera, she manages to draw out people’s inner self, capturing shared private, organic and human moments between photographer and subject, making them accessible to outside viewers.
When looking at the works, one almost feels transported into a gentle daydream, through which these mystical moments of human emotions and playful spontaneity are able to penetrate deeply the viewers inner sensibilities. At the same time, the works are in no way obtrusive or demand a particular perspective, but rather settle into the viewer’s personal affections like a pleasant fragrance.
