Barbara Probst is a photographer and contemporary artist, born in Munich in 1964. She lives and works in New York and Munich. Probst’s images use multiple points of view by employing as many as twelve cameras and tripods, arranged around the subject, to photograph multiple points of view captured in separate images but taken simultaneously with a single radio-controlled shutter release. “All of the images of a series present different views of the same place or event at the same moment.” While traditional photography directs the viewer to see a single image, Probst’s sequences are composed of a series of separate, though related images incorporating multiple perspective of a single moment. Her photographs cause viewers to experience a shift in time while reconsidering their presence in physical space. “Barbara Probst embroils us in different possible interpretations; focusing on a specific moment in time… she directs our attention to the time before or after…” Her work disregards photography’s standard concept of “decisive moment,” and instead references cinema’s practice of multiple cameras to create movement and diversion.
