PHOTOPIA Hamburg opened its doors from 21 to 24 September at the Exhibition Hall and Congress now for the third time, promising a program fully packed for inspiration and creativity. ESTHER HAASE was represented there not one but multiple times.
Stop by and enjoy my talk ! On Friday, 22 September, 2023, ESTHER HAASE made an appearance as key speaker at 3pm (Photopia Stage Hall A4). The keynote was a talk with Jasmin Seck, an art historian with a main focus on photography.
Moreover, Leica is presenting the exhibition Esther Haase ‘Je t’aime’ in the gallery of her trade fair booth, printed by WhiteWall. This was accompanied by an artist talk on Saturday, 23 September, 2023, at 2:40pm. For this purpose, Esther will have a conversation with Ulla Born, curator of the Leica Gallery Düsseldorf, in the Leica gallery of the booth.
The series photographed with the Leica S shows photographic moments in a wonderful short story. ‘The series ‘Je t’aime’ pays homage to Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg, idols of the exhilarating 60s and 70s, the period I was born into. The series was created as an editorial shoot in the Karl Lagerfeld Villa for Leica S Magazine, who came up with the idea in cooperation with a record label to have songs visualized by photographers. The song ‘Je t’aime’ is unthinkable without Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg. It fits precisely into the world of my visual imagination and has not lost a bit of its charm for me to this day,” Esther tells us.

And she is having an artist talk for this as well; this time, together with Gunnar Wagner, Creative Director of WhiteWall. It will take place on Friday, 22 September at 5pm at the WhiteWall booth. This talk will additionally be streamed on the social media channels of WhiteWall.
