Francesca Pfister practices a form of visual archeology. Working in photography, video and installation, she explores the physical world around her in search for human presence. In Snow Traces she investigates a pedestrian’s experience of Philadelphia streets in the aftermath of a snowstorm. The photo installation composed by twelve diptychs testifies of Pfister's fascination with the transformative qualities of ephemeral marks and traces in the urban environment.
