Michael Schlegel is a German photographer well known for his breathtaking landscape photographs. After his studies, he soon began to consider studying photography before changing his mind. He decided to become his own teacher. A winning gamble! Paris, Macao, Zurich, Hamburg… The self-taught artist now shows his work across the globe. He has also received the recognition of his peers numerous times at prestigious international competitions (International Photography Awards 2010, 2 PX3, Prix de la Photographie Paris 2010, etc.). His black-and-white photographs are the result of a carefully wrought recipe: a minimalist setting, intense contrasts, and long exposure times. The results are impressive – like seeing the wind blow, the fog drift, and river water flow.
