The artist

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?.  ... See more See less

All artworks

I love what is beautiful. The serenity of a beautiful garden and the grave of an architectural monument must provoke the same emotion for the viewer. They must be enchanted through their emotions.

BERNHARD HARTMANN

About the artwork

The photographer?s compositions follow a centred perspective, which he captures from the royal lodge or by placing his camera?s lens in the centre of the stage. In this way, he underlines the spatial symmetry and order, and the theatre?s rhythmic compositions, created by rows of railings and lodges with lighting from rows of candelabras. Velour and gold ornamentations and a painted ceiling in the centre of which hangs a gigantic crystal chandelier, contribute to the general harmony of the ensemble. Fascinated by this visual spectacle, the artist uses photography to create an imposing vision of the whole while respecting the atmosphere of the theatre.Though the architectural distribution of traditional theatres is often quite similar, Bernhard Hartmann nevertheless underlines the specificity of each of their grand and specific decors. Each bears witness to its own history and especially to the decorative style, quite often representative of a specific artistic period. La Fenice in Venice, having been reconstructed several times due to fires, has preserved a pronounced taste for rococo or ?rocaille? art of the 18th century, with its ornamentation and quirky details.
