Photo exhibition ULLA C. BINDER – Behind the Scene
The exhibition Behind the Scenes shows images and scenes most concert audiences never get to see: moments on tour, at festivals, and in the studio, captured behind the scenes or backstage.
Berlin photographer Ulla C. Binder photographs jazz in a very special, intimate way. She does not depict people, situations, and still lives during big performances, but during the moments before or after: characterised by stage fright, concentration, tension or ecstasy, exhaustion and relaxation.
At the age of 12, Ulla C. Binder is presented with her grandfather’s Leicaflex and starts experimenting with it. Along with her watercolours and sketch book, the camera accompanies her to Freie Kunstschule Stuttgart. While studying art and textile design, she works on her photographic and graphic techniques and discovers jazz as a new passion.
As a tour companion, manager, and photographer, Binder spends many years alongside musicians. She creates album artwork, takes press photographs, and creates documentaries of entire tours and of the Berlin jazz world. For five years, she observes the Elbjazz Festival in the port of Hamburg backstage, publishing an illustrated book entitled “ELBJAZZ backstage” (Nicolai Verlag) in 2014.
Ulla C. Binder is also co-founder and creative director of as well as photographer and draftswoman for the XJAZZ-Festival Berlin.
