Floris M.(ichael) Neusüss, born: 03.03.1937 in Remscheid Lennep

Floris Neusuess remained for its technology and its motives during one period from now forty years, in which an unparalleled change in the evaluation of the photography carried out itself, faithful. While today nobody doubts more the possibility of making art with photography photo work in exhibitions of contemporary art in large number is represented, itself philosopher, art historian and medium critics completely naturally with photo theory employ and also the naive faith, to which authenticity photographic image long is discharged, belonged around 1960, when Floris Neusuess began his work with Koerperfotogrammen, to commitment and prepared to take risks shank to it, this technology to turn. In the process of its approximately forty-year old work he experienced an enormous propagation from literature and exhibitions to the topic photography; without its artistic, publizistischen and kuratorischen activities the range of the photogram would be however still a neglected peripheral area.
Although the study of the human body was since invention of the photography one of the most important topics, the body was foreseen in the early Fotogrammen, from occasional hand castings, no picture article. Only Neusuess consistently and over years in its work and an almost magic Leiblichkeit held again and again given the whole body to the body picture. Floris Neusüss work stands, which concerns the density and variety of the body and head photo gram, singularly in photo history. Depending on, how long on or before the photo-sensitive paper lying heads and body are exposed, as large the distance of the parts to the paper is, whether they move or which kind and arrangement the source of light is develops fluctuating brightness values, overlays of gray tones, vague outlines and sharp edges of edition. Even if the traditional figure reason - problem starting point of its experiments in the area of the cutting back and bodyfotogramms is, finds Neusüss fast to always new design elements. He works with changes of position, cross fades, multiple exposure, solarisationen and different light directions, provided and combines positive and negative Fotogramme, so that partial narrative seeming or picture sequences develop. With multiple exposure produces newsweetly transparent clay/tone stages in the penetration figures and it arise illusory areas of fully astonishing processes, pictorial working gradationen, plastic granulation and ambiguous interference.
