In general the term "sweet spot" describes an area of optimal effect. It is in common use across all fields of life and science. Concerning photography it means perfect sharpness as well as the best effect on the beholder.
Seldom ordinary views of a subject reach the best effect.
That's why the cooperative project of Munich based photographers Marina Biederbick and Andreas Rumpf is called "Sweet Spots". High-quality photographs taken with a large format camera on 4x5'' slide film draw an unknown picture of everyday places. Besides the selective focus blurring the large part of the picture is a joint attribute of all photographs. It is effectuated by tilting the lens plane. Various light moods during the blue hour intensify the unreal impression.
Since the whole project is conceived cross-urban further cities are going to follow in regular intervals in order to place emphasis on the series' continuity.
