Unit F büro für mode presented approx. 50 collaborative works by the stylist Natascha Hochenegg and the photographer Lisa Holzer. The photographs showed imperfections and trivialities. From a female perspective they dealt with issues such as vulnerability, strength, sexuality, reality, destruction and banality.

Lisa Holzer and Natascha Hochenegg have been collaborating on various projects since 1997. With these photographs they wanted to make a clear statement on photography and fashion, without having to adhere to the restrictions of market-oriented conditions. Most of the photos were taken during the past few months. Natascha Hochenegg herself is portrayed in the pictures, thus putting the focus on the mutual exchange between the two women. The collaboration was intensive, but it also created space for individual development and experimentation.
