About Stephan Gabriel

Today, I incorporate my experience as a filmmaker in motorsport and Formula 1 into expressive still images. I call the resulting works "artography" because they are a combination of photography and artwork: Unique photographs implemented with innovative presentation methods as limited editions.

I portray artists and personalities from different genres, with the eyes telling the story. The basis of my photographic work is a keen interest in people and their stories, coupled with a fine sense for image composition, arrangement and aesthetics. A good photo is subject to rules, which I like to break in a targeted way. With this attitude I go into every shooting to find new ways of painting expressively with light using the camera as a tool. I attach particular importance to the connection with the person in front of the camera. The resulting fine points of interaction create unique moments.

The aim of my work as a photographic artist is to achieve the most perfect arrangement possible between artist, backdrop and moment. The limited editions are created with great attention to detail from high-quality materials and always have a certificate of authenticity with hologram and numbering.
