About Heinz Baumann

Heinz Baumann was born 1955 in Switzerland. After his studies in philosophy, psychology and fine art, which he finished with a doctorate, he started his career as a photographer. Since 1995, he has been working in his own studio in Zurich, Switzerland, specializing in conceptual, still life and fine art photography.

Heinz Baumann has received numerous international awards for his work, including: Graphis Photography Annual, International Photography Awards, Prix de la Photographie Paris, International Color Awards, Black and White Spider Awards.

Today he lives and works in Zurich and Sonvico TI.

As a still life and conceptual photographer I like to explore a broad range of photographic subject matter. I especially try to create a strong visual statement in my work in order to take it beyond the reality and express a personal vision.
