What is covered, what is concealed, can be uncovered, can be revealed. Not only the veiled are capable of being unveiled – nor do those who bare all necessarily lay themselves bare. Niedermeyer requires a mere nine color photographs to indicate an entirety whose parts correlate as yin and yang. In this, he poses questions that engage humankind. How refreshing that, for once, somebody offers no answers.
– Ernst Schmiederer
