A Silent Visit but not an unnoticed one by Ester Vonplon at Vu Gallery, Paris

In an interview with Anne-Celine Jaeger for Foam magazine, issue #28 / Talent, 2011, Ester says ‘What interests me is the miracle of the unspoken and the unseen. I am always in search of stories in my pictures, like a short film that only lasts one frame. I want you to see the photograph and for something inside you to change forever.

I want to show you and make you feel that there is a story behind these people and places, a story that, from one moment to the next, could disappear forever’.

Ester Vonplon from Switzerland is a former professional snowboarder and skater girl. Legend has it that she bought her first camera on a flea market. After the first few self-taught baby steps, her fate led her to Berlin, where she learned the art of photography at the Schiffbauerdamm and graduated in 2007.

‘She shot her first work at an underground street fighting venue in Germany before giving up entirely on a documentary approach, choosing instead to photograph the countryside during her solo wanderings in Europe, the Balkans and her native Switzerland’ - the gallery's take on Ester's advent into the world of art.

Ester first began shaking up the art world in 2011, when Foam magazine featured her young and fresh talent (see the quote at the beginning of the article).

Following Paris Photo 2011, VU Gallery is delighted to exhibit Ester's works. Even more so, since Ester's has been the protégé of gallery-artist Michael Ackerman for quite some time now.

Ester Vonplon was born in 1980 in Zurich and lives and works in Zurich and Castrisch.
