More information about some of the artists:
With Andreas H. Bitesnich Hahnemühle has a long-standing cooperation. Andreas H. Bitesnich was discovered as one of the first top photographers to use Hahnemühle´s Digital FineArt papers for his large-format prints. He has been loyal to the market-leading inkjet paper since its development in the 1990s. “I´m printing my sculptural nudes in black and white, haunting portraits and quiet, almost melancholy journey motifs from India, Tokyo, New York and Paris myself on Hahnemühle Photo Rag ® Ultra Smooth.”
Mario Marino is a travel portrait photographer, Austrian born and based in Germany. Marino has been photographing various peoples in their native lands since 2000. His work is exhibited in museums and galleries around the world. Central to his pictures is a fascinating portraiture in which he maintains an empathetic connection to his subjects. “I try to read people’s lives, the circumstances they live in. I’m fascinated by their cultural background and identity. The paper of my choice is Hahnemühle William Turner.”
Stefan Milev photographs sending out rays of sensual poetry. He acclaimed himself a pictorialist in the field of fashion photography. He gives his pictures a subtle aura of mystery and stands with his work between photography and painting. “Therefore I love to see my images printed on matt Hahnemühle Digital FineArt papers such as Museum Etching – prefered with handtorn deckled egdes.” Stefan Milev displays a highly artistic photographic identity towards the relationship between the model and his very personal technique of painting with light.
Urban landscapes are the preferred subject of Jochen Brillowski. His pictures are full of energy: vibrant colors, fine details and sharp contrasts. He is fascinated by digital imaging and fine art printing. “I love to snatch the night of their darkness and bring them to light, make them shine in vibrant colors. Reflective water I use as an amplifier. I enjoy working ‘crossover’, linking techniques of different areas of the subject and then print impressive motives on the new Hahnemühle Photo Silk Baryta. ”
