Jiri Wolker (1900-1924) a Czech poet, journalist and playwright, has written words remembering my school time: “I love the things, this secretive companions, everybody is handling like they are not alive, but they are alive, and they are watching us...”
My collage tries to interpret this visually.
Andrea Ehrenreich was born 1966 in Bratislava, Slovakia. Very early, already when she was a child she was interested in architecture and photography. In her profession as an architect, she has been cooperating in many big and small projects. She has been working on some of hers interior projects too.
As a child, she took photos with her father, who was a proud owner of a Flexaret camera (made in Czechoslovakia). She returned to photography in 2005. In 2005-2006 she was visiting Fotoschule (Photo school) Vienna. Since this time, she began to take photography more seriously. Living in a wonderful city like Vienna, it makes her very proud to have taken part in some local architecture projects refurbishing old buildings and building up new ones.
Photography gives her more freedom in her artistic expression. Especially using Polaroidphotography, she goes back to her roots to be creative. At the same time it is essential to her, to be able to feel the spirit of an interesting building, and to catch a certain atmosphere in architecture photos.
