These works by Barbara Probst might just be my favourite feature ever on Booooooom. I posted a few of her photographs back in 2008 and randomly visited her site today to find she has made even more amazing work since then. In each series the same exact second is captured from different viewpoints. Her work questions the authority of a lone photograph by revealing several different representations of the same moment. I love how her framing leaves just enough of a clue in each photo to figure out what’s going on.

  • at first glance some of the scenarios seem impossible – i find they are more rewarding the longer i look at them

    • completely agree.  the fun is in figuring how she managed the different settings in each photograph.

  • God damn.

  • thats absolutely amazing. really thanks Jeff.

  • Wow ! At first I couldn’t understand what was going on on these pictures, but you’re right, the more I look at them the more I get to understand the scenarios that are behind the poses and the expressions on the kid’s faces ! Love it !

  • the last 2 pictures gives me an idea about X Y !
