The artist

Alongside his photographic talents, Klaus Leidorf is a well-known aerial archaeologist. Born in 1956 in Germany, he studied history and theology in Bonn before working as an assistant scientist at the University of Marburg in 1983 and later joining the Bavarian State departments for the preservation of historic monuments. With his aviators’ licence in hand, he turned to aerial archaeology in 1988 and criss-crossed Germany from East to West, focusing mainly on the former border that divided the country during the Cold War. A multi-talented figure, he founded a publishing house that is now one of the most established in the field of archaeological literature. Besides this historic testimony to his native country, Klaus Leidorf has an exceptional artistic eye and produced aerial photographs from the window of his Cessna 172. His pictures were published in thematic books and have also been presented at most art fairs worldwide.  ... See more See less

About the artwork

Klaus Leidorf owes the title of ?aerial archaeologist? to over two decades of flights aboard his Cessna 172, a touristic airplane that he flies himself and that has enabled him to photograph human remains within the Bavarian natural environment from the air. ?When I take the plane and I see the world from above, I?m no longer concerned about petty things. I?m calm,? he explains. Like Yann Arthus-Bertrand, the artist observes the Earth from a surprising angle, except that his landscapes reflect a surrealistic world, owing to the use of perspective and shifts in scale. Whether assembled in the grandstands of a football stadium or in the water of a public swimming pool, people appear minute. Klaus Leidorf takes to the skies to take stock of how small our species really is, in the face of the immensity of the world.

DAMIEN DUFRESNE

As Damien Dufresne says himself: "I let my hands do the talking". His approach is totally new in that it's at the crossroads of makeup, body art, artistic direction and photography. The resulting complexity, technicality and beauty are impressive. Damien Dufresne, a make-up arti...

Ferocious beauties isolated from all context, as though they had been captured in their most secret intimacy, this is the remarkable artistic gesture of Peruvian photographer Pedro Jarque Krebs, restoring to the animals some of their stolen dignity. After studying philosophy at t...
