philosophy

In life, what is interesting is not necessarily Black or white

but the perfect mix oft he tow

 

Black and white photography calls for the sensitivity and gift of Observation as well as the knowledge of what surrounds us and the ability to abstract from the surrounding colors. Knowing how to read and analyze the language of a picture, how to reinforce a ststement and bring it to paper, is an old craft that demands utmost passion for this art from as well as many years of experience and expertise.

 

In conscious contrast to today`s digital photography, it is for 25 years now, that I have been emphasizing and conveying emotions with my professional prints in order to express the fascination of a lively and honest picture.

 

„He who knows the White and is able to assert himself in the Black shall be the measure of all things.“ (Laot-se)

 

 

I am looking forward to working together with you personally and guarantee professional advice as well as an efficient and cost-effective execution of your orders.
