Bernhard Hartmann

JARDIN OUBLIE III

About this photograph

While the subjects of his photographs are usually theatres and operas captured in various regions of Germany, Bernhard Hartmann manages in this series on forgotten gardens to get away from munificent interiors devoid of spectators to reveal a world of open skies. Bernhard Hartmann?s melancholic images once again stem from his frenetic, quasi-obsessional and poetic search, as he immortalises abandoned sites on his travels. Here, nature gradually reclaims its stake, overrunning spaces that seem to have been forgotten by civilisation. They brave the passage of time, welcoming silence, after the memories left by humankind have dissipated. In these deserted places, no more than the rustling of the wind can be heard through a broken window or the sound of water dripping from a dilapidated ceiling.

The Artist
Bernhard Hartmann

Born in Frankfurt in 1955, Bernhard Hartmann began his artistic career at the age of 18 as a press photographer for a German newspaper. Self-taught, he studied art and became a landscape photographer after discovering this medium with the aid of his parents? Polaroid. He creates dramatic and cinemascopic images that are often compared to the Romantic paintings of Caspar David Friedrich, but also to the dramatic natural scenes by English painter William Turner. He prefers to photograph places where the arts are practised and expressed and thus presents series on operas, theatres, or European manors. A lawyer in Munich, Bernard Hartmann now lives near Lake Starnberg in the Bavarian Alps. His works belong to numerous private collections and have been shown in the United States, Spain, Italy, and Germany. He was elected ?Photographer of the Year? by a Swiss magazine and won the ?American Black-and-White Photo Awards? as well as the ?Panoramic Epson Award?.
