André Wagner

Photography

André Wagner deals with his camera virtuously and investigates the possibilities of lighting situations. Staging photographs in great detail the young artist creates authentic images that are not digitally manipulated. He succeeds in a remarkable way in perceiving internal and external phenomena of a situation. Standing in the tradition of Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, André Wagner sees photography as an ideal means of expression, within he can transfer attitudes and beliefs.

His painterly, poetic photos can be seen as a reinvention of the traditional genres. This is mainly caused by the light-interpretation because Wagner photographs usually by means of long-time exposure and the use of various light sources, causing an interaction of associative thought patterns. Each and every moment seems loaded with content, rising above the purely aesthetic message.

Numerous exhibitions have already taken André Wagner throughout Europe, China, New Zealand, and the United States. He has won several awards for his work and is represented in public collections.

The artists was born in 1980 in Burgstädt (Saxony, East-Germany) and ended his apprenticeship as a photographer in 2001. Since 2004 he has been living in Berlin.
