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
