Barbara Probst is a German photographer living in Munich, Germany, and New York. In 2000, she began taking multiple images of actors in a single scene, shot simultaneously with several cameras via a radio-controlled system. The resulting series convey a complex, playful, and darkly cinematic vision of people in time and space.


Probst’s works span photographic genres: landscape, still life, fashion, portraiture, street photography. Her multi-perspective approach results in quasi-three-dimensional views of her subjects while activating philosophical questions of optical authority: what is visual truth when multiple perspectives are in play? does more visual data result in greater realism, or less?


Subjective Evidence is a multi-venue retrospective, opening at the Kunstmuseum Luzern, Switzerland, in February 2024, traveling to the Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati, in October, 2024, and finishing at the Sprengel Museum Hannover, Germany. The exhibition catalogue, published by Hartmann Books, Stuttgart, includes essays by Fanni Fetzer, Stefan Gronert, and Kevin Moore.
