Walter Pfeiffer's photographs - long an underground classic, now an artist of international renown - balance between staging and snapshot, between artificiality and immediacy. They subvert the "everyday" with subtle wit, charm, and eroticism. The aesthetics are precise, yet passionate and sensual. It is obvious: we are supposed to be seduced here. Perhaps we are already "In love with beauty" (the title of the 2008/2009 retrospective at Fotomuseum Winterthur)? The VFO is now bringing out four still lifes by Walter Pfeiffer: silver cutlery on shimmering fabric, a bowl of fruit, a bouquet of roses, tulips with bag and nude photography. The subjects are overwhelming with a gold rush, evoke echoes of a fruit still life by Cézanne, astonish with their colours turned up, show views that usually remain hidden. They are elegant, bold, impetuous, tender worlds.
