Michael Wagener, Siegen, Germany


In addition to commercial commissions or conceptual work, photography is always an experiment for me. The rapid technical change and the omnipotence of the images always calls for a new examination of the possible contents and forms of appearance. The works I submit come from the field of photographic experiments in form, combining digital processing possibilities with material - craft changes to the image subject. People are wrapped in various materials such as tulle or foil and photographed in their movement and this photograph is digitally mounted.
My photographic investigation lies in the effect of the combination of different haptic impressions and visual structures in their new combination. For me, the results of the pictures are pure experiments in form and remain open to interpretation by the viewer.
