ART PHOTOGRAPHY BY JORG BECKER

CLASSIC FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY  WITHOUT SOFTWARE MANIPULATION

I value the independent development of my work, as in the times of analog film and traditional darkroom technology.
PORTFOLIO

Welcome,

i practice fine art photography on various subjects which I paint with the light and colors of nature.

I develop my photos with a RAW converter and edit contrasts and colors.

Almost all effects are created when the photos are taken.

Initially with analog film and from 2004 digital, but without camera-internal image processing and without digital manipulation.

I value the independent development of my work, as in the times of analog film and traditional darkroom technology.



BIOGRAPHY

I am originally from Saarland, Germany and live in the south of France on the Atlantic coast.

For more than 40 years fascinated by photography and the power of pictures, I practice the photography in the classical style.

Inspires by many art books of my father I caught at the age of 10 years in to paint and to sign. 
Architecture and art fascinated me and I quickly realized that these media would affect my life.

At the age of 16 years I discovered the images from Doisneau, Brassai, Ronis, Hamilton, Sieff and other famous photographers.
I bought a Minox and tried to imitate the photos of this artist. But the results were sobering.

Then I studied the photograph, especially also the black-and-white photograph after Ansel Adam. 

I bought a single lens reflex camera, a photo lab and learnt to develop photos, tried out the different films and experimented.
Exposure, focal length, point of view, moment, distance, film delicacy, lighting conditions, a variety of factors that make up a picture.
A completely different than the "click-and-ready-world" of amateur photography did to me.

I always had my camera with me. A motive see develop an image in mind, realize in the camera and edit in the darkroom.
And more and more I had the good results.

In the beginning of the 2000s disappeared many of the good films of the market. A very big incision in the photography.
And at the beginning of the digital photography it seemed that the artistic photography would become possible for everybody.
Really the difference became even clearer by the digital photograph between click photos and art photograph.

Since 2004 I take a photo digitally without automatic and without camera image processing with light-strong objectives exclusively in the RAW-format. 
I develop the pictures like in analogous times, but now digitally. Almost all effects already originate with the admission of the picture without digital manipulation.

ARTIST STATEMENT

My inspiration comes from the observation of life and nature around me, from my inner thoughts and feelings, from looking behind and beyond everyday life as it appears to us, and searching for answers to the usual existential questions. My works are symbolic representations of my views and reflections of what I see and perceive; translations of emotions, dreams, fears and feelings.

Moments, otherwise easily passed, are caught and they become real. That‘s the magic of photography! Today anyone can take pictures ... 
But only a perceptive person can draw with light, master the shadows, capture the beauty, grace or charm of a person.
My inspiration comes unexpectedly and the most beautiful pictures are often conjured up by chance.
I express myself through pictures. Through photography I speak and compose.
