abstract, photography, modern, landscape


Photography is not objective and can not depict the reality, it always remains on the surface, always subjective and interpretive. It creates an illusion of reality. I want to move away from this illusion to a photograph of subjectivity, of emotion. How do I experience my environment? Isn`t my vision more dynamic than the static photo? I associatively connect everything together! My eye moves continuously in the space surrounding me, I experience things connected in time and space. How can I show this? I expose long time to make more visible. In this exposure time something is changing , something with the naked eye can not discern, but will be felt. There are things behind the visible things, the space around things will be visible and so I can find a link to my own reality, my imagination.



Bernhard Winkler studied at the University of arts in Berlin and graduated in 1983. He worked for over twenty years in the filmindustry as a director of photography and started his career as an artist in 2005. His work is a reflection about the human perception , showing a connection between space and time.

He works and lives in Berlin.
