Bio Sabine Korth

 

 

 

 

Hi there! I am a photographer, artist.and workshop leader by day, dream-catcher by night, and this is my website. I am German, live in Italy, in a small seaside town in Tuscany, and I work (play) with collage in different means, my whole life…

The artist Sabine Korth breathes new live into the figurative and narrative form of the photomontage,

an expressive technique that flourished in Germany during the fertile season of the avant-garde movements. In real life and in her pictures, she undertakes a journey from South to North. Places, faces, animals, objects, signs belonging to Egypt, Mexico, Venezuela, Cuba, the Ivory Coast, Ghana and Zimbabwe come together to form imaginative compositions that set before our eyes that South of the world of which we know little or nothing. In the second stage of her work, Sabine Korth mixes images of the world of the South with images of the North, those of our European cities, inventing new visual realities that allude to the true mingling of cultures that characterizes our dawning multiethnic society. An ideal journey which brings together different cultural forms and stimulates reflection on the subject, not through the classical documentary form but through a creative one which appeals directly to the sphere of the imagination.
