Fred's Sword, 2015

Fred’s Sword takes its origin from the series Young Gods (2015), a documentation of a young male generation in Denmark and an exploration of adolescence. With adolescence comes a confusing time of experimentation that makes young males feel weak and strong simultaneously. At once a quest for freedom and a resolution to responsibility, the series interrogates this age of self-discovery.

Restless, to drift and stroll,
searching to find his fill,
of varied space and novel thrill,
for tricky risks and wavering scenes,
lusty joy and raising misery.
Between a blossom of vanity, a rave of tranquility.
Flying ahead, drifted through the air,
without purpose and scare,
an insuppressible flurry of vital signs.

Stefanie Moshammer

Without doubt, Stefanie Moshammer (*1988 in Vienna) ranks among the most respected positions of a new generation of photographers. Her photographs move between the genre of documentation and fiction, between spontaneity and staging.

Her work springs from her direct experience of the world and explores the relationship of straightforward observation and the poetry of personal impressions. The use of vivid colors, stark contrasts, unexpectedly cropped scenes, and her skill for subtle observation, is what make her photos so unmistakable.

After graduating from Fashion School Vienna, Stefanie Moshammer received a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design & Photography at University of Art and Design in Linz, Austria and she attended the BA in Advanced Visual Storytelling at the Danish School of Media and Journalism.

Her photographic oeuvre has been featured extensively by renowned specialist and public media, including i-D, ZEIT Magazin, and SZ Magazin, and has been widely exhibited internationally throughout galleries, festivals and fairs, including Foam Amsterdam, C/O Berlin, Photo London, WestLicht Museum, and Lentos Art Museum.
