Dystopia – Surreal Landscapes by Jörg Karrenbauer

Jörg Karrenbauer’s current work irritates the viewer by appearance and reality: inhospitable terrain, grainy formations, the contrast between black and white goes like a crack through the picture. An unfriendly landscape in the future or even of another planet? An icy landscape? Desert mountains? Hot or ice - it is up to the viewer what he sees and feels...

“Black and white pictures create a surreal magic!”

“Black and white is abstract; color is not. Looking at a black and white photograph, you are already looking at a strange world.”

Joel Sternfield

“Black and White has fascinated me from the beginning. Contrast and composition as a design tool for me the attraction: In particular, the reduction to the essentials. The photographic gaze focuses on the significant pixel; the visual sense reduced perception to black, white and all shades of grey. In this way monochromatic images with a timeless, surreal and sometimes monumental character arises.

I am a 58 years old photographer and curator from Saarbruecken (Germany). At 16 I got my first SLR from my brother. That was the initial spark for my love of photography. I photograph exclusively black and white and print my work limited on Hahnemuehle FineArt Baryta.
