About the artwork

Christine Ellger has always pledged an undying passion for photography. References to childhood are also an integral part of her work. We dive into her artistic world in the same way as if we were opening a book of illustrated tales. With mushroom houses and valleys as rollercoasters, each of her images evokes fantastical and incongruous worlds in which the spectators are invited to lose themselves. Christine Ellger refers to Romantic painting, which is based on the passions and feelings of the artist. In Germany, Caspar David Friedrich and his landscapes charged with unusual atmospheres inspired the photographer, particularly through the impression of solitude and nostalgia emanating from them. In this image, the Westerheversand lighthouse seems to emerge from the water. Built in 1906 in front of a dyke on an artificial elevation of approximately 1 000 metres high, in the German town of Westerhever, it is framed by two houses that accommodate the lighthouse keepers. The symmetry of the complex contributes to the overall harmony of the site.

The artist

Christine Ellger has practised photography since she was 11 years old. The arrival of digital technology and the possibilities it offers for retouching was a real trigger for her. Beyond taking a good photo, Christine Ellger thus looks for themes that will provide sufficient material to create montages. Christine Ellger’s pictures do not contain a sociocritical message but reflect the romantic side of life.  ... See more See less

My images do not have a sociocritical message, they are not documentation, I want to show through my works the romantic side of life.
