"This is a lovely, simple series, all made in one day, in an extended moment of inspiration," said Jim Casper of Lensculture about Claudia Eschborn's series "Hamburg Sud". This equally applies to Claudia's triptych shown here.

Claudia interprets the landscape, by capturing a moment in time when the light, the subject and Claudia's own response to what she is looking at; all coalesce into one and the result is a sublime photographic moment.

She dissects her subject, shifting her large format 4 x 5 Linhoff camera across the landscape to break it up into discreet sections. Her purpose is not to make the edges match in a larger seamless panoramic. Rather Claudia's intention is to leave bits out and play with what has changed from one image to another providing greater detail and interesting relationships across each complete triptych or diptych.

Awarded one of the coveted bronze medals at this year's AOP Awards in the Personal Interiors & Architecture Series section, Claudia previously won the AOP Assistant Award in 2007 and received a Merit in the Landscape, Interiors and Exteriors category in the same year.

Her work has been exhibited at the Polaroid Retrospective, London, Red Dot Art Fair, London and online at Lensculture.
