The series Blindschleiche und Riesenblatt by photographer Anne Schwalbe can be seen as an ode to slowness – an ode to nature, light and emptiness. Schwalbe photographs her surroundings intuitively, with no preconceived ideas. Compiled in a publication or hanging together in an exhibition, the photos become the lines of a poem. Photographed prose.
Anne Schwalbe visualizes stillness, providing another voice and a welcome change from the contemporary visual bombardment.

In the series Blindschleiche und Riesenblatt (translated literally as: slow worm and grant leaf) Anne Schwalbe has reduced the world around her to core images. With no reference to location or other narrative aspects, she reveals what has caught her notice, or the things that fascinate her. Rain dripping into water, a close-up of a dung-hill or colourful confetti on the asphalt: each image has its own strength and tells its own story in the mind of the viewer. A rhythm of colours and forms is created, invoking contemplation and peace.
