‘Together Apart’ is an ongoing series and the title of the new photography book of the Ritsch Sisters that reflects the ever-changing nature of our society. The project came to life very naturally in the sense that the sisters started working together while living apart, Anna in New York and Maria in Vienna. The essence of the series ‘Together Apart’ lies not in focusing on a consistent subject, but in the development of a method that revolves around duality and dialogue. The work shows intimate portrayals of the experience of photographing together despite being physically separated.
Anna and Maria Ritsch are sisters who work as an artist duo. Their focus is in photography and video that explore the tensions between the physical, spatial, and emotional. The duo collaborates internationally, with Maria based in Vienna and Anna in New York City.
