I am an established architecture and fashion photographer from Cologne in Germany. I have a set of evocative images from Coney Island, New York and louvre, Paris.
Biography Jo Fober.
Jo Fober, Fashion and architectural photographer"”and 2008 Hasselblad Masters finalist"”, was born in 1964 and lives and works in Cologne, Germany,
He shoots in future projects include more Fine art relegated pictures.
Jo's first photographs of Coney Island in February set against an eerily winter grey sky evoke a time lost. The images speak of a past colorful and vibrant; through his lens, Jo hints at this past and invites the viewer to imagine how Coney Island was back then. The shops are there, the iconic wooden slats are there and Jo Fober's photographs bring you there to the heart and spirit that is Coney Island.
While Bernd and Hilla Becher dedicate their work to the frontal photograph of industrial plants, the Cologne-based photographer has documentated the buildings of Paris with the same precision, that such experiments seem to allow him an seemingly inventory. The systematic frontal and central view give the photographs a documentary dimension, based on typology. It is precisely this system and the concept of the index, which gives an artistic dimension the photographed works. Jo Fober offers us a new perspective of cultural sites. His photography is an expression of tranquility and silence in this chaotic society: a sense of perspective and equilibrium. This is therapy for the soul. The german photographer has become famous as a master of bringing a vibrant energy to extraordinary interior spaces. Truly having an architect’s eye for presenting interiors, Fober captures and receates the feeling of three-dimensionality that each grand space contains. Always shooting during the most oppertune conditions and making use of only available natural light that is an integral element of the architecture itself. He captures the overall soul oft he superbly designed atmospheres.

A short spell of 2 semesters studying Photo Civil Engineering at the University of Applied Sciences in Cologne and a six-assistant in a portrait studio intermitted his career as a photograph firstly. However, in 2000 the switch was again folded and laid by various developments of the foundation for the current style.
He has followed the major graduates of the Becher school (Art Acadamy Dusseldorf) and imbibed their work. However, in order to distance himself with his work, its architecture and landscape shots are implemented digitally elaborated with the NoBleach analog development method. This results in color reduction and intense contrasts.
