For Tina Lechner, photography is not just a mean of recording a pre-existing reality, it is even a tool for creating new images and ideas. With roots in the historical avant-garde, the artist's photos are just the visible part of a reflection process that deals with human body metamorphoses in relation to the superstructure represented by clothing, work tools, and entertainment.
