Die verklärte Nacht, 2002
“Essential in Martin Zeller’s photo works, is now the phenomenon of the image space as a place of overlapping visual information - at the same time representing the multilayeredness of the depicted. Zeller searches the city at night for reflections on glass or metal surfaces and takes a close look at the visual potentials of a photograph’s surface, rather than working with the possibilities of creating a depth of field within. The resolution of the photographic image in fore-, middle-, and background poses a challenge of its own to the viewer.”
Andreas Schalhorn, curator at the ZKM, Center for Art and Media in Karlsruhe, 2002
