FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY
photo Claudia Kempf
As a self-taught photographer, I am captivated by landscapes and enjoy capturing their various aspects and the connected outdoor experience. Photography provides the perfect contrast to the world of theater and its constant self-involvement as a performer. Since joining Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, I have had the great opportunity to photograph the company's pieces when I am not on stage, which has inspired me to incorporate the human body and motion into my photographic work.
I find that theater and photography share an inspirational commonality in the way they create atmospheres through live motion or a captured moment in time. They serve as tools to trigger our own imagination and open doors to somewhere else, somewhere between the lines perhaps.
In addition to my personal photographic endeavors, I also work as a project-based photographer for Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch. Recently, I created a new photo series for Dachverband Tanz Deutschland to coincide with the launch of their new website.
My photographs have been published and used in books, festival booklets, performance programs, posters, newspapers, websites, online magazines, album covers, and more.
