Out in the wild, Claudio Gotsch’s patience is frequently put to the test. The photographer waits for hours in the icy cold, lying motionless among the expansive mountain landscape until his animal subjects make an appearance in front of the lens. “It is unbelievable how much you discover when you go through nature with open eyes,” Gotsch says.
“My work is always inspired by light, because it allows us to see everything,” says Heiko Hellwig. In a very exact aesthetic, he reveals the intricacies of delicate butterflies and elegant koi. The clear lines and monochrome background are typical characteristics of Hellwig’s oeuvre.
Horst Klemm loves taking pictures out in the wild, where his experiences range from highly emotional to extremely dangerous. On the hunt for the perfect photo, he has been stalked by leopards and even attacked by crocodiles. Getting so close to the action, Klemm creates haunting works of art revealing the souls of wild creatures.
For Julian Wolkenstein, taking the perfect horse portraits is an enormous undertaking. “Styling the manes took an incredibly long time, and the horses were irritated by the artificial lighting,” the photographer says. But the artistic efforts paid off! Wolkenstein’s works fascinate us with their humorous approach and resemblance to paintings by the old masters.
