About the artwork

German-born photographer Klaus Tiedge criss-crosses Africa in search of answers. His photographic practice has always been guided by his questions about other civilisations, the diversity of the animal kingdom, and nature. Since the 19th century, Africa has fuelled the imaginations of Western artists. Beyond paying tribute to its beauty, these artists have sought to uncover the mysteries of a land and culture that will remain forever inaccessible to them. After over a decade spent travelling across the continent, Klaus Tiedge affirms that his curiosity today is just as strong as ever and that Africa is "good for his soul". High-quality key lighting, brilliant composition, and technical perfection are emblematic of this artist's work, who has clearly done his time in commercial photography and now seeks to draw our attention to the beauty and diversity of the African continent.

The artist

Born in Germany, Klaus Tiedge was an important figure in advertising photography for over 20 years. His work led him to travel the world – from India, to Japan, Brazil, and the United States – but it was South Africa that stole his heart and he decided to move there permanently. To practise his profession of photographer, in 2001 he settled in Cape Town, a vast multicultural city located at the tip of the country and that has been reinventing itself since the end of apartheid. Klaus Tiedge decided in 2008 to dedicate himself exclusively to art photography and focuses his work entirely on the African continent, which he appreciates for its rich cultural diversity and authenticity. In addition to his impressive images of wildlife, he has attracted attention for his sensitive series of portraits of the Himba and Zemba peoples in Namibia, but also through his collection of majestic baobabs. “My interest in Africa has not diminished over time. I feel as though I’m travelling now more than ever,” he says.  ... See more See less

All artworks

“I have always been buoyed along by curiosity and the desire to travel the world. This same curiosity led me to Africa. Whether I’m representing its people, its animals, or its landscapes, I find that is beneficial to my soul. Diverse, authentic, and satisfying.”

CLAUDE DEGOUTTE

“The wall belongs to the ‘retards’, ‘inept’, ‘rebels’, ‘simpletons’, to all those with a big heart. It is the blackboard of the school of life,” says French-Hungarian artist Brassaï in his famous back Graffiti. A veritable ode to urban art, Brassaï’s reflection was to mark the a...
