Wolfgang Stahl

PHOTOGRAPHER

architecture | industrial | people | landscape

Mit Hilfe meines ästhetischen Bewusstseins und dem sicheren Gespür für klare und moderne Bildsprachen realisiere ich fesselnde und individuell fortschrittliche Motive in den Bereichen Industrie, Architektur, Portrait und Kunst Dokumentation. Auszüge meiner persönlichen Arbeiten präsentiere ich von Zeit zu Zeit auch in öffentlichen Einzel- und Gruppenausstellungen der Kunstszene. Meine Werke wurden in den letzten Jahren von Institutionen wie der Arte Laguna Venedig und der Spider Award Jury Beverly Hills mit Auszeichnungen bedacht.

Having viscerally honed my aesthetic sensibility for the last two decades affords me with a palpable acuteness for clear and modern visual language that I employ to effect captivating and forward-looking motifs in the fields of industrial, architecture, people and art documentation. Sujets of my personal work are presented to the art scene regularly and have merited distinction from institutions, such as Premio Arte Laguna Venice and the Jury of the Spider Awards Beverly Hills in recent years.

On first glance, Wolfgang's work is strikingly graphic and simple, arrestingly clean and bright and the images so cleverly mixing colour, shapes, forms, textures and focal points that it all seems so easy to understand. But behind this immediate impact lie the depths, detail and humour that draw you in and make you want to linger and study them for ages. It is rare to be able to "get" truly modern images so quickly and then find yourself drawn looking at them time and time again.
