A new Perspective of Cultural Sites by Jo Fober

Jo Fober is an architecture and fashion photographer and a Hasselblad Masters finalist. His architectural and landscape photographs have been digitally implemented according to the no-bleach principle of the analog development method. The result is a color reduction and intense contrasts.

Fober's photography art is influenced by Bernd and Hilla Becher, the German conceptual artists and photographers best known for their photographic image series or typologies of industrial buildings and structures. The Cologne-based photographer's frontal photography captures similarly precise buildings in his hometown and later in metropolises around the world.

Fober's works are created exclusively using natural light, which is itself an integral part of the architecture. In this way, the soul of the depicted interior and exterior spaces should be captured.

The systematic frontal and central view give the photographs a documentary dimension, based on typology. It is precisely this system and the concept of the index, which gives an artistic dimension to the photographed works.
