Schwalbe photographs her surroundings intuitively, with no preconceived ideas. Compiled in a publication or hanging together in an exhibition, the photos become the lines of a poem. Anne Schwalbe visualizes stillness, providing another voice and a welcome change from the contemporary visual bombardment. With no reference to location or other narrative aspects, she reveals what has caught her notice, or the things that fascinate her. (…) each image has its own strength and tells its own story in the mind of the viewer.
Foam Museum for Photography Amsterdam


The images although void of any narrative reveal an enormous amount of curiosity and intensity. Also the delicate presentation of the book as a collection of loose leaves seems more than adequate to the subject matter. This is an absolute gem.
Photographers’ Gallery London

Berlin-born photographer Anne Schwalbe recently put a pair of new prints up for sale on her website. Her work is very serene, capturing the simplicity of nature's small beauties and putting them through subtly altered states as part of the printing process.
Ryan Willms / Inventory Magazine

Anne Schwalbe hat einen Blick für die Abstraktionen der Natur, für die Geometrien von Gräsern, aber auch für die Grazie einer einzelnen Feldblume. Zwischen Berlin und Tokio hat sie seit 2009 Hunderte Rasenstücke fotografiert und in ihrer Serie „Wiese“ und "Wiese XXI-XLVIII“ editiert. (…) Bilder voller Geheimnis, weil sie keine Hinweise auf die Umgebung, keine narrativen Perspektiven bieten und die deshalb, bei aller Ausschnitthaftigkeit, so grenzenlos sind. dass sie ihre ganz eigene Geschichte im Auge des Betrachters erzählen.
Simone Herrmann / Architectural Digest


The ethereal nature of photography at its best.
Bruno Ceschel / Self Publish Be Happy

From the mystic to the banal, each photograph is somehow able to captivate the viewer, with a strange and eerie depth to the images, ghost-like and compelling.
Bemojake / Maxwell Anderson, London

Anne Schwalbe´s ›Wiese‹ (meadow) - Flowers, grasses, ferns - they are simply there and radiate in an unnamed grassy paradise. Almost too beautiful to be true. The clear layout, the particular choice of materials, the special finishing - everything contributes to the fact, that we step on this meadow slowly and cautiously, look around in peace and can enjoy the often overlooked gems. Every E-Mail, my friend Wolfgang Beinert sends, ends with the words: EVERYTHING GOOD IS FRAGILE - SAVE IT! This also is the message of Anne Schwalbe´s WIESE.
Hannes Wanderer / 25books Berlin

more about edible wild plants: the twigs i found a while ago in a park are from a Linden tree / Linde / Tilia. now the twigs have leaves. and Linden leaves are very edible and very delicious as salad. you can also eat the very young blossoms. ein gutes Buch zum Thema: Essbare Wildpflanzen (Fleischhauer, Guthmann, Spiegelberger). (unbezahlte Buchtitelnennung, ist einfach ein gutes Buch. muss man das dazuschreiben?) ⠀⠀⠀⠀

planted plants, installed a birdhouse, weeded the weed, had delicious meals, met friendly people, heard birds sing, biked by bike, collected trash on the meadows, went to a concert, felt the warmness of the stove on my back after the cold morning shower in the courtyard. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
did not clean up the shed, did not cut the firewood, did not hoover the house, did not finish the measurement of my house. to do. #mymorningruntree
so many edible wild plants are growing already again! this is Viola (Veilchen). on the second photo are: stinging nettle (Brennessel), Viola leaves (Veilchenblätter), Viola blossoms (Veilchenblüten), Gundermann, apple buds (Apfelblütenknospen), the very young not stitching parts of blackberry (ganz junge, undornige  Brombeertriebe), Goldnessel (Lamium). for the salad i added some small kale leaves. also Bärlauch (wild garlic) is growing again. very delicious. and everything is growing in my garden.....
a good book about edible wild plants is: 
Essbare Wildpflanzen (Fleischhauer, Guthmann, Spiegelberger). (unbezahlte Buchtitelnennung, ist einfach ein gutes Buch. muss man das dazuschreiben?)
hello again. #mymorningruntree
