BelleVue Ort für Fotografie in Basel is showing photographic works by the artist Franz Goldschmidt, who lives in Basel and the Basel region, from March 11-26. Under the title "voyages," Goldschmidt is showing mainly photographs taken during his travels in Europe, Eastern Europe and Indonesia. On the one hand, these are digital, color snapshots in small format, on the other hand, large-format B/W prints from pinhole camera negatives. Important for Goldschmidt are the different time dimensions of the media: collecting with the pinhole camera versus hunting with the fast digital camera. The location-specific, identifiable is not important - he is much more interested in similarities and contrasts. Situations and structures from different places, from civilization and nature, are encountered, some of which show surprising parallelisms.
