Untitled #212 (S/P Saul)

Fletcher, Saul
In his photographs Saul Fletcher visualizes human existence in all its temporal dimensions and physical fragility. The scenes he depicts achieve a concentrated intimacy: In order to take in every detail, the viewer is compelled to get as close as possible to the work. His careful still lifes draw attention to details; the discarded moments of the everyday become the focus, and in this way are imbued with new or altered meaning. Renate Wagner (Extract from catalogue of the 4th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art, 2006)
