SwitchenAbout this photograph
Since childhood, Christine Ellger has 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. Mushroom houses, valleys as rollercoasters and books used as stairways to the stars, each of her images evokes fantastic and incongruous worlds in which the spectator is invited to lose themselves. By following paths that cut through the fog or by climbing flying ladders, she uses any devices that will sweep us away into the wildest of dreams. 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.Read more Read less

Christine Ellgerâ€™s pictures do not contain a sociocritical message but reflect the romantic side of life.
