The present work ‘White Trash Beaufiful’ by Stefanie Schneider reflects about the myth of the American dream. The cinematic scenery reveals a Southern Californian residential estate with a young woman wearing an orange-red wig. Her view seems contemplative and somewhat uncertain, telling a dreamlike episode from her life.

The photograph is in very good condition. It is number 53 from a limited edition of 150 copies and has been executed on Fujicolor paper. The image size is equal to the sheet size of 30.5 x 30 cm. The LUMAS edition certificate with all typographic indications on the work is enclosed; it is signed by the artist ‘Stefanie Schneider’.

Stefanie Schneider (b. 1968)

Stefanie Schneider was born in Cuxhaven and studied photography at the Folkwang Schule in Essen. In 2006, she became the ‘shooting star’ of the art market and gradually established her works in the international scene. Her unusual use of faded Polaroid films has become the hallmark of her artistic output and is characterized by unpredictable and often bizarre color gradients. Schneider also likes to rework the surfaces of her Polaroid pictures with rather unorthodox materials such as sand, in order to take analogue pictures from these compositions in a final step. Stefanie Schneider lives and works in Los Angeles and Berlin. (cbo)
