About The Artwork

The above image belongs to the series “South of California”. The photos for this series were all taken on the southern tip of California, mostly in San Diego County as well as the Tijuana area in Mexico. It is an homage to the lifestyle, the architecture, the colors as well as the unusually beautiful light that can be found in this special part of the world. This particular photo shows a red Cadillac I photographed in La Jolla, a rather upscale beach community north of San Diego, in the late 1990s. I am very familiar with that region as I spent 5 years as a Ph.D. student at the University of California, which happens to have one of its Campuses in La Jolla. I lived not far from the campus and saw the red car by accident while taking a walk to the beach. Medium: Archival pigment print on UV-resistant, premium photo paper. Light-fast for more than 200 years. Each print has an integrated white border around the actual image for easy framing and is part of a limited edition series of 10 prints (plus 2 artist proofs), 8 of which are available on Saatchi Art. Signed and numbered on verso. Not mounted.

Born in Germany. Got his first camera, a Kodak Instamatic, on his 6th birthday from his parents. Ever since, he has been hooked on photography. Even while pursuing his studies of Art History and Literature, his true passion has always been the creative process itself -- the actual making of an artwork, instead of only writing or discussing about it. After his student years in France and California, he relocated to Berlin, Germany in the early 1990ies, right after the fall of the Berlin Wall. In 1998, he returned to southern California before moving back to Berlin in 2004. Between 2009 and 2013 working and living in Hong Kong. From there moving on to the Provence region in the south of France. Currently living with his wife Sarah, a painter, in the Montpellier area. Some thoughts on the images seen on Saatchi Art: “I first define a project and then create a series of photos for this project. The style of photography has to suit the topic and is therefore different each time. For example, for the series “South of California”, I used a colorful style that reflects the bright and beautiful light, which exists in southern California and Mexico. For “French Connections”, I used a different, vintage kind of look as this series is also meant to be a hommage to French inventors like Nicéphore Niépce and Louis Daguerre, who are considered the creators of photography, and other Frenchmen that contributed ground-breaking work in the development of modern photography and film (e.g. the brothers August and Louis Lumière for motion pictures).”
