Silke Seybold

Born in 1972 - United States


Silke Seybold was born in 1972 in Brackenheim, Germany. At age 28 she moved to Detroit, Michigan. Silke attended the analog photography program at OCC Oakland Community College in Royal Oak Michigan.?She works primarily with medium format film cameras and develops and prints her work in the traditional color and black & white dark room.?Her photographs have been shown in several exhibitions in Michigan and her work has been published in periodicals in several countries.

"I often wandered, strolled and roamed around in disused places, fascinated by these massive structures left behind with an almost indescribable atmosphere. ?To me these locations are compelling on many levels; the smell, the different textures, the danger, the uncertainty, the solitary and yet a comfortable mood as well as the feeling of time passing. After returning to these buildings I developed a connection with these locations and my deepest feelings.?

I started to take self portraits in these neglected places. The feeling of vulnerability, loneliness and isolation seemed to have been amplified by moving far away from my home. In these unusual, sometimes surreal but not imaginary places, I can reenact my desires, feelings, hopes and fears to an extent which would not be possible in my ordinary life."
