I do not work in a preconceived genre. My subject material, determined
subtly and subjectively, always responds to movement of internal
emotion and finally solidifies in a finished picture. At the same
time, I look for a style of my personal perception. I do not feel the
need to be objective about my work as the results are always my
feelings which come to life through my pictures. I search constantly
and strive to produce a successful image.
When one speaks about or relates to particular genres, the genres exist
only on different levels of usage. They are artistic and informative
results that relate to specific photographic work. For me, photography
is too complex to be reduced to single areas.
As one who works with concepts, I serve Photography, choosing different
possibilities depending on the picture. I take advantage of the
situation to create my pictorial style.
The realization of my pictures is a subjective process whereby series
of decisions are pre-planned. My work progresses according to my
understanding of composition, my ideas, my creative process and my
feelings toward the respective theme. My idea, my concept and my
conclusion, determine my creation.
Preceding the creations, there is a connection between the meeting of
certain people or empty rooms or houses, which touch my feelings or
emotions in a way that results in ideas that live in me and ripen until
through the process of photography, they become pictures. My thoughts
and work with photography are beyond the real world. A well planned
photograph that conveys a subtle deepness.
The goal of my photography, is to be effective, to enjoy the pictures
and feel them- connect with feeling, understand the pictures and in the
end, to love them.
I am interested in the early 20th Century, especially the Bauhaus
period. One of my main areas of study is of the master of photography,
Walter Peterhans. His clear composition and use of light has
influenced my work and my development.
Jeannine Fiedler writes about Walter Peterhans / teacher at the Bauhaus in Dessau:
- - He is a mathematician and surveyor whose methods and
- - systems are built on axioms. – He is an aesthete and
- - philosopher who defines the law of nature through
- - creative imagination. – He is a teacher who finds
- - the philosophy of learning in Platon's Menon.
- - And last but not least, he is the photograph who
- - arranges his works to make scenes of perfection.
