Beach IIAbout this photograph
I started to take pictures of landscapes pretty early in my photography career, in the beginning without really noticing what I was doing. I was searching for the right format for quiet a long time. In the beginning I used a 4/5inch linhoff, later, I think in 2003. I switched to a 6/17 linhoff which was much easier to work with. I took the camera everywhere, it a hassle to carry and I hated it a lot having this extra bag with me all the time. But I found out that once I did not take it there was something I wanted to take a picture of. So I had to take it with me all the time. in the beginning I was using the camera mostly outside but than I started to do pictures of insides as well and I really liked it. I started to shoot all the rooms I ever sleep in for example. Sometimes I also take images where are people, but I find it a little difficult and I am not sure if I like those images so much, though some turned out really great. The images I take can be anywhere, usually I am not searching for a location, I just happen to walk by something and I do the picture. I am not out there for this special thing. To me it feels more like a documentation of things that are around me. Things I see and that I think will look good as a photography.

GÃ¶tz GÃ¶ppert was born in Munich in 1969. The photographer is based in Paris, but he travels around the world in search of â€˜unprecedented and unusualâ€™ subjects. He gathers documentation that he compares to a modern cabinet of curiosities. The photographer succeeds in imbuing all of his works with poetry. Even the most technical subjects are treated in the artistâ€™s own distinctly experimental and graceful style
