“Ein-Fuß-Gänger” (1950), Otto Steinert


Inspirado en el estilo heredado de la Bauhaus, el fotógrafo alemán Otto Steinert (1915-1978) promovió una corriente iconográfica a la que denominó “fotografía subjetiva”. En una época en la que las cámaras apuntaban hacia las armas, Steinert decidió voltear hacia los detalles y a dejar el peso en la técnica.

“Ein-Fuß-Gänger” (1950) es una muestra posterior al surgimiento de la corriente pero en ella se muestran distintas aristas que caracterizaron al movimiento, como las técnicas empleadas y el uso de las líneas. El encuadre muestra el tronco de un árbol capturado en picada, al lado del cual se sitúa un pie.

Posterior a la desaparición de la Bauhaus a causa de la censura nazi, Steinert se atrevió a trasladar la estética planteada por la escuela hacia la fotografía pocos años antes del descenso del régimen. Por medio de técnicas poco usuales como la solarización y el alto contraste, conseguía que las líneas y texturas perdieran su forma habitual y se convirtieran en partículas abstractas.

La importancia de la corriente tiene sus raíces en que fue el primer movimiento fotográfico que se extendió de forma global y que inició como una afrenta hacia quienes pretendían capturar la realidad de forma objetiva, como los fotorreporteros de guerra.

Probablemente realizada con una doble solarización, “Ein-Fuß-Gänger” muestra un contraste intensamente marcado. En la parte baja de la imagen casi no existen los grises, el blanco y negro predomina sobre los pequeños detalles que varían en la gama tonal.

El gran enigma proviene del pie que se presenta aislado de su cuerpo. Aunque podríamos pensar que el cuerpo es borrado por una exposición larga que no ha permitido fijar con detalle el cuerpo, las líneas cercanas nos muestran una edición posterior a la realización de la imagen. En la década de los cincuenta, la edición fotográfica en el laboratorio comienza a ganar popularidad, con lo que comienza a borrarse el aura realista de la fotografía.

Steinert intentaba mostrar a través de sus imágenes una planeación que iba más allá del momento de la captura final. Para el artista, el proceso anterior al disparo permitía una concepción completa de la obra como arte, a modo de respuesta contra el uso propagandístico que le había dado el partido nazi. Con el uso de la técnica y la manipulación en el laboratorio, el fotógrafo tomaba de nuevo el control sobre el objeto fotografiado.

El movimiento tuvo un fuerte impacto en Alemania, algunos de sus exponentes capturaron escenas de la posguerra en las que mostraban la devastación de sus ciudades a partir de encuadres tan abstractas que no siempre parecían mostrar esos escenarios. La mayor parte, sin embargo, se concentró en capturar escenas con líneas, movimiento y encuadres cerrados que muestran a un país en crisis visto tan de cerca que no pareciera estarlo.
