The Artist
Artist/Künstler Self-Portrait, ~1986
My photographic journey started at the time of the gymnasium in 1985. [0]
My work are 'mise-en-scène' of scenes and moods with classic photographic technics [1] without setting something artificial on stage respectively creating thorugh postprocessing. [2]

Characterized are my pictures likley most through the ideas and concepts ...
  • of the Decisive Moment [3]
  • of the Impressionism and Expressionism [4]
  • of the Composition [5]
  • of the Search after new Picture Impressives [6]
For this I prefer to use for my work:
  • Wide Angle Lenses
  • Strong Contrasts
  • Selected Color Designs from extrem colored till black and white. [7]
  • The bandwidth between steril perfection till 'intensional' imperfection. [8]

[0] Interestingly I have started also with Super-8 movies in 1983. But I see movie and photography as different types of art using only partly the same technics. See: Vita.

[3] See Wikipedia*: Henri Cartier-Bresson citated in his book the 17th century Cardinal de Retz in 1952:
See Google* Books: "Il n'y a rien dans ce monde qui n'ait un moment decisif"
("There is nothing in this world that does not have a decisive moment").
[4] See Wikipedia*: Impressionism and Expressionism.
[5] See Wikipedia*: Composition.
[6] Despite I have also my themes and prefered styles, I'm nevertheless bored from a simple repetion and start my search for something new.
[7] This was finally only in the digital photo world really possible.
[8] See also the Wabi-sabi aesthetic. That is sometimes described as one of beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete". See Wikipedia*: Wabi-sabi.
