The photographs of Stefanie Motta are simply gorgeous, entirely mysterious and intimately otherworldly. Inkjet prints hung unframed on the gallery walls, the photographic imagery is created using a 4x5 sheet of color negative film placed in a pin-pricked black plastic bag that is submerged into a body of water such as a river, bog or spring. This crude pinhole camera exposes the film to not only an exposure of light, but also the water and its unpredictable and uncontrollable contents, revealing the imagery of a chemical reaction that is both ethereal abstraction and environmental documentation.
Stefanie Motta is a graduate of the University of Minnesota MFA program, a photography teacher, a yoga instructor and a dog owner.
