FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY
photo Claudia Kempf
I am a dance artist and self-taught photographer. Intrigued by landscapes, wanting to capture its various aspects and the connected outdoor experience was my starting point to get involved with photography. It gives me the right contrast to the world of theater and it’s constant self-involvement as a performer. Since my time at Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch I am having the great opportunity to depict her pieces whenever I am not on stage myself. This encouraged me to bring the human body and motion into my photographic work as well.
Theater and photography have for me an inspirational commonality. The atmospheres created through live motion or a captured moment in time can be tools to trigger our own imagination and become a door to somewhere else. Somewhere between the lines perhaps.
Next to my own photographic endeavor I work as a project based photographer for Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch. Currently I have created a new photo series for Dachverband Tanz Deutschland and their new website launch (here).
My photographs have been published and used in festival booklets, performance programs, posters, newspapers, websites, online magazines, social media, album covers, a.o.
