Christian Voigt

 

Christian Voigt was born in Munich in 1961 and later moved to Hamburg, where he currently lives and works.

More than just photographs, Voigt brings back from his travels around the world full-fledged stories condensed into one single image. Capturing almost hyperrealistic pictures, he revives in our eyes forgotten childhood emotions. Voigt’s monumental pictures open up to us like vast pools for the senses. We gently lose ourselves in an archetypal dune landscape, to land in the historical architecture of an ancient Egyptian temple or in a dated Vietnamese Barbershop. The subjects Christian Voigt photographs are incredibly diverse: a tattoo studio in Buenos Aires is at home in his repertoire next to New York’s Morgan Library, while an enchanting landscape in Myanmar is juxtaposed with the clean lines of Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum. Our thoughts cross continents and cultures in these images.

Using analog and digital cameras, Christian Voigt’s photographs are easily recognizable through their digital fine-tuning. However, Voigt stresses that he develops his unique visual language with his camera, not a computer. Intense artificial color and imposing formats, are typical of his artistic vocabulary.

Since his first show in 2009, he has had solo exhibitions in Basel, Hamburg, New York, Los Angeles, London, Saint-Tropez, Amsterdam and Madrid. His oversize works have garnered top honors from a steadily growing number of collectors and admirers.
