Statement

German-born Klaus Tiedge has been a prominent figure in the field of commercial photography for more than 20 years, having worked in numerous countries including India, Japan, Brazil and the USA. In 2001 Klaus moved to South Africa and settled down in Cape Town taking full advantage of the a thriving fashion industry and optimal conditions that the region is renowned for.

In 2008, Tiedge decided to shelve his commercial endeavors and pursue his passion for fine art photography as he turned his attention to the beauty and diversity of the African continent which has inspired him for the years since he lived there.

Artist statement:

I was always been driven by curiosity and the desire to travel the world. My fascination is underpinned with questions such as: “what is life like for others and how do other people live on our planet, how diverse is nature and what else is out there and beyond? ”

Pursuing answers to these questions has led me on numerous photo trips to India, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Japan, Mexico, Australia, USA, Brazil and Ecuador.

The lens becomes my eyes and I literally devour my experiences and document them forever.

Finally, in 2001, a photo trip brought me to South Africa. I liked it so much that I moved herewith my wife Sandra and we decided to make Cape Town the center of our lives which we now share with two children.

My curiosity for Africa hasn’t abated as I find myself travelling more than ever. Whether portraying her people, animals or landscapes, I find that Africa is good for my soul. It is rich, genuine and satisfying. I pray I do her justice.
