Images like "A cause de l'elevage de poussiere" ("Because of Dust Breeding") and the 71-part Fait/Fact series have won Sophie Riselhueber (1949-) a nomination for the 2010 Deutsche Boerse Prize. One of four photographers so honored, Riselhueber began her career as a journalist. After a 1991 insight into the parallels between the dust accumulating on the back of Marcel Duchamp's now-perpetually-damaged Bride Stripped Bare and the wreckage of Gulf War Kuwait, her initially documentary work has evolved into an almost metaphysical exploration of the weight of rubble on a human scale and, abstracted, the planetary landscape.
