Knut Maron discovers his photo motifs, which are filled with the symbolism of momentariness, in daily life. In the project “One Life,” he addresses death and the question of what remains at the end in a very personal manner: In the home of his 82-year-old mother, he creates a photographic diary of the final phase of her life. The touching images that he created are those of corporal fragility and the visible order of a long life. Photos of mourning and saying goodbye allude to a subjective perspective of a sense of the order behind things. Nothing spectacular emerges; the intensity of his photographic empathy has been rightly honored with numerous prizes.
