This is an exhibition catalogue for the show entitled Face to Face – Portraits in Contemporary Photography which took place from the 19th of September to the 27th of October 2002 at the Landesgalerie am Oberösterreichische Landesmuseum  and from the 18th of September to the 31st of October 2002 at Fotohof Salzburg. This exhibition featured work by Antoine D’AgataTina BaraValerie BelinClement CooperBernhard FuchsRince De JongLeo KandlTomasz KiznyNina KorhonenAnett Struth and Mette Tronvoll.

As a result of collaborative research from both institutions, work was shown from eleven different European artists in accordance to the theme of the exhibition. In addition to architecture and landscapes, the confrontation with the portrait proves to be a central focus of contemporary photography. Each of the eleven positions presented follows its own iconographic concerns in dealing with a gegenüber. The exhibition project attempted to move closer to this phenomenon through the analysis of artistic concepts of, and approaches to the human image.
