Uschi Groos, born in Germany. Trained as a photographer, lives and works as a freelance photographer in Germany and on La Gomera, where she runs an artist residency (Casa Tagumerche). This art space allows her to experience a wealth of exchanges with artists from all over the world.
Her work has been shown in national and international galleries, in solo and group shows.
I hate the expression „leaving one’s comfort zone“, because for me, there is no such thing as a comfort zone. I never make it easy for myself in my work and always push the boundaries of what I can do. In my photographic work, I don’t try to comfort or entertain the viewer. Instead, I want to show things that might not be comfortable to look at, but provide new perspectives on topics we have taken for granted too easily.
