Guest of the Planche(s) Contact Festival in 2013

Terri Weinfenbach was born in New York in 1957, and raised in Maryland. She exhibited for the first time in 1979 in a collective exhibit, and on her own in 1991. She has written over 13 books, often in very limited edition, very appreciated by collectors. Her work was integrated in a number of prestigious collections of establishments such as Hermès, the Sir Elton John Photography Collection, the Museum Ludwig of Koln, Germany, the Museum of Photographic Arts of San Diego and the Center for Creative Photography of Tucson, Arizona.

Her work is completely atypical: she only photographs fragments of nature – trees, flowers, and sometimes insects – sublimed by a skillful play between blurriness and focus. In Deauville, the artist presented her vision of the Calouste Gulbenkian Park, municipal greenhouses, private gardens and floral decorations of the city, presenting a flowered town where details are of the upmost importance.
