Jana Nowack’s photographs shine with artistry and intelligence. How she captures atmospheric light diffuses her images with tension or foreboding. They are the beginning, middle or end of a short story left to viewer to narrate. Her abstractions, transforming the photographed world, are experiments in color and light that create new visual worlds for the viewer to contemplate.
