"My view and interpretation of art are very different. I use standard photography and at the same time image modification. I have been told many times that I create unusual but also expressive images. These are pictures with both visible and hidden messages for the viewer.”
Born in Poland, contemporary photographer, Christoph Woloszyn belongs to the artist group
'Künstler-Initiative Gelsenkirchen' and 'Art in the City.'
"My view and interpretation of art are very different. I use standard photography and at the same time image modification. I have been told many times that I create unusual but also expressive images. These are pictures with both visible and hidden messages for the viewer. However, the essence of art is to look beyond the borders, instead of just staying in creative development. Creating one's own kind of art, following one's own thoughts, using one's own intellect and representing the real in a different way, that's my kind that will always follow.
In my experimental visual language, I work as a surrealist. In my motifs, I go beyond the real and the substantial. I alienate my photographic motifs through light, through technical effects, through materials to bring it closer to the viewer, but in a different constellation and perspective."
In 2010, Christoph earned a Degree in Photo Design at the art academy IBKK in Bochum. For many years he has been engaging in art photography and his self-developed photo projects, are worked out and converted by him. With numerous exhibitions and art fair participations on a national and international level mark his artistic path.
