"Regine Petersen bases her work on the vagaries of her own thoughts. She covers many different topics in a wide variety of genres, thereby emphasizing the ambiguity of photography, which similarly cannot be pinned down. Observing Petersen's works—whether landscapes, portraits or interior scenes—is akin to setting out on a walk that follows the photographer's dreams, which she lets drift freely. Following the photographer's wanderings, the viewer is encouraged to return to his or her own thoughts."
Aperture is pleased to offer our collecting audience Regine Petersen's Ladybug, as featured in reGeneration 2: Tomorrow's Photographers Today, the second book in the esteemed series shining a spotlight on the next generation's rising stars.
Inspired by the many artists from the original 2005 reGeneration publication who went on to develop international careers, Aperture has prepared limited editions by several of the 2010 volume's participating artists, some of whose work will be available for purchase for the very first time. The sale of these prints will help support these emerging artists—and give collectors an opportunity to acquire their work early in their careers.
Regine Petersen (born in Hamburg, Germany, 1976) received her MA in Photography from Royal College of Art in 2009. She has participated in group shows in the U.K., France, Germany, and the U.S., among others, and her work is held in the collections of the DZ Bank, Musée de l'Elysée, Michaelis School of Fine Art, and Galerie f5,6 in Munich.
