Herbert Boettcher was born 1962 in Rietberg, Germany. The Dipl.-Designer lives in Duesseldorf and works since 1993 as a freelance photographer.
From 1988 to 1993 he studied visual communication in the specialist area photo/film design at the Fachhochschule Bielefeld, University of Applied Sciences. Between 1995 and 1999 he taught art to the University-GH Paderborn. Numerous Publications and exhibitions since 1990.
In my opinion the use of a pinhole camera at times, where digital media are available, is not a fallback into ancient history of photography, but rather a conscious decision. Creative work with the pinhole camera in combination with digital applications offers extraordinarily sophisticated possibilities for new photographical areas.
Latest work: SEAMOTION | journey by container ships from Germany to Brazil and Hong Kong (lens- and pinhole photography).
