Among these images, we find some of the frequent themes in his creative universe: flowers, stripes, and the fashion accessories that Pfeiffer uses to sublimate his subjects. The cat figure and a deformed face photographed through champagne glasses demonstrate his touch of humour and his exuberant inventiveness. His low angles and tight framings reveal an almost cinematographic dimension, which gives the same feeling of timelessness to each of his photographs in a total decompartmentalisation of genres.
Linking eccentricity with the poetic, Pfeiffer’s work conveys a powerful visual energy. Since the beginning of his photographic practice in the 1970s, he has been creating with appearance and reality—"Sein und Schein”—and immersing us in his audacious and quirky creative aesthetic. The iconic status of his images never stops inspiring a society that has an ever-increasing appetite for images.
