Veronica Bailey is a British Fine Art photographer based in London, specialising in visiting archives and producing photographic series with emphasis on conceptual thinking and historical narrative. Her work continues to explore nostalgia for the threatened forms of human communication and knowledge dissemination and the lure of traditional forms of paper and script in an monotonously digitized age. In her photographs Bailey works with everyday life objects, which have been carefully arranged. Books and letters are composed in ways that seem to resemble sculptures of geometrical forms.Sometimes traces of text are visible, but the context of the works remains enigmatic. The viewer has to reflect on the photographs in order to find a personal way of interpreting the works.
Veronica graduated with her Masters from Central St. Martins in 2003. She won a Jerwood Photography Award for the 2 Willow Road Series 2003 featuring the abstract photographs of books from the National Trust library of the modernist architect Ernö Goldfinger and his wife Ursula Blackwell. Postscript series 2005, documents a small but revealing archive of letters and telegrams (1937 1945) written by model/muse/photographer Lee Miller during her years as US war correspondent in World War II and British Surrealist artist Roland Penrose (1900-1984) prior to their marriage in 1947. The About Face series accompanied Postscript; drawing attention to inspiring female surrealist artists. Hours of Devotion & Shelf Life series 2007 delves into the Coutts bank staff library on the Strand producing monumental works inspired by 19th century bookbinding and philanthropist Angela Burdett-Coutts (1814-1906). The Limited Time 2009 series of palm trees (Fuji Instax Mini Polaroids) is a brief departure from large scale photography but Bailey returns in 2010 with the Modern Myths series featuring newspapers, highlighting the visual language between human nature, war, money and power in the media. 2012 showcases a unique photographic text series Hermes Baby 2011 which experiments with traditional black and white film and darkroom processes along with the journalism of the Americian war correspondent Marguerite Higgins (1920-1966) who worked for The New York Herald Tribune.
Solo shows in UK and internationally USA, Korea, Canada, Germany. Press features include Portfolio, Art Forum, Hotshoe International, Eye, Guardian, FT. Postscript is represented in the Victoria & Albert Museum London and other UK and International Collections. Art and Photography Fairs in London, Paris, Seoul, Munich, Toronto, New York, Miami, Los Angeles.
Veronica is an Ambassador for the photographic charity Photovoice since 2009 and also regularly supports other charities and trusts through her art: Room to Read, Merlin, Laurence Sterne Trust, Cancer Research, LACE.
Lucien Clergue (1934 - 2014) was a self-taught photographer from Arles, France. He struck up a lifelong friendship with Pablo Picasso, with whom he became acquainted with during a bullfight when he was 19 years old. His series of bullfights is well known but his work also encompasses landscapes and nudes. In 1956 Clergue started to include photographs of nudes at the shores of the Camargue. From the mid 70’s onwards, nude portraits in urban landscapes and colour photographs became a main part of his work. A series of photographs of various sand structures titled ‘Sables’ was another important project of Clergue’s.
From the end of the 1950’s on Cleargue’s work has been exhibited with great success. His work was showcased at the Kunsthaus Wien (2007/2008), the Garphikmuseum Pablo Picasso Münster and at the Städtische Galerie Erlangen.
In 2004 Clergues photographs were presented at Bernheimer’s exhibition Toros y Toreros, where his work was presented alongside Picasso’s illustration for José Delgados La Tauromaquia, as well as Goya’s paintings from a series with the same name. His first solo exhibition at the Munich showroom came in 2005 and was followed by another solo exhibition in 2009. His work has been furthermore presented at the Paris Photo and the Frieze Masters.
Sebastian Copeland was born in 1964 in France. He later studied at UCLA where he graduated with a Bachlor of Arts in film. Copeland was a successful director of music videos and created advertising films for brands such as Disney, Fila and Pantene before he dedicated himself to environment protection and art photography. The artist lives and works in Bel Air, Los Angeles and, for the past ten years, he has been one of the heads of the US department of Gorbatschow’s environmental organisation Green Cross.
From 2005 onwards he undertook several expeditions to the Arctic, Antarctic and Greenland. The photographs that he took there document and highlight the effects of climate change. His images show a remote, endangered world that is about to disappear. The dreamy photographs depict the beauty of the landscape of the poles and of Greenland, with their rich organic structures and graphic shapes. The vast blue and white surfaces of these varied shapes convey a sense of stillness and clarity. Copeland sees his photographs as a means to convey his impressions and experiences from his travels with the public. He wants to raise awareness and get the viewer to engage with these landscapes of the arctic on an emotional level.
The large digital photographs he took have already been printed in numerous book publications. His work has been published in several magazines like Comsmopolian, Elle, GQ, Marie Claire, National Geographic, People, Publisher’s Weekly, The Face, USA Today, Vanity Fair and W Magazine. Copeland’s art photography has already been exhibited in many international galleries and museums.
Bernheimer Fine Art Photography and Flo Peters Galerie, Hamburg, exclusively represent Steven Copeland in Germany. 2013 was the first solo exhibition of Copeland in our Munich gallery. His photographs are showcased at art fairs such as the Paris Photo.
The German photographer Mat Hannek was born 1969 in Freiburg-Dessau. He worked for several newspapers and radio stations before studying at the European Academy of Fine Arts, Trier and the Lette-Verein in Berlin.
In 1995 Mat Hannek became the assistant of Prof. Hermann Stamm and the photographer Uwe Arens. He worked with them before founding three years later the Kasskara agency in Berlin. Hennek began by mainly photographing pop musicians such as Sting or Tracey Chapman, but from 2004 until 2009, eventually focused exclusively on classical musicians. He created memorable portraits of soloists such as Hillery Hahn, Krystian Zimerman, Hélène Grimaud and Lang Lang, of the conductors Sir Simon Rattle, Kent Nagano, Claudio Abbado and of the opera singers Rolando Villazon, Anna Netrebko and Thomas Quasthoff.
In 2006 he gradually started to explore landscape photography. His Woodlands series is the result of numerous wanderings through the Swiss forests and uses concisely taken photographs to capture the decay of forested landscapes. His photographs often don’t include a visible horizon or ground, which creates a disturbing yet soothing effect on the viewer.
The Alpenpässe series is a continuation of the photographic approach that Hannek used for his Woodlands series. This time he photographed details of alpine passes to resemble aerial views, meaning that the viewer cannot differentiate earth from the sky.For his landscape series Hannek only has analogue medium and large format cameras, without the use of any digital manipulation.
Bernheimer Fine Art Photography represents Mat Hennek in Germany. In 2011, after several group exhibitions, Mat Hennek had a solo exhibition called Alpenpässe – Woodlands at the showroom in Munich.
Together with his landscape work Mat Hennek photographs for brands such as Montblanc, Lufthansa, Rolex and record labels as Sony BMG, EMI, Virgin Records, Universal Music Group, Four Music and the Deutsche Grammophon.
Horst P. Horst
Horst Paul Albert Bohrman (Weißenfels 1906 – 1999 Palm Beach) was an American photographer of German origin. Under the name Horst P. Horst he became a celebrated fashion and portrait photographer who was renowned for his dramatic use of light.
At the end of the 1920s Horst began to study architecture at the Kunstgewerbeschule, Hamburg, but in 1930 he travelled to Paris and briefly worked at the studio of Le Corbusier. In Paris he met Vogue photographer Hoyningen-Huene who introduced him to French Vogue, where he eventually became chief photographer. During this time he began spending more time in the USA and, by the late 1930’s, he had moved with Hoyningen-Huene to an apartment in New York. During World War II he served as a photographer for the US Army. After the war he again worked for Vogue in both Paris and New York. Horst was also advised by Diana Vreeland, chief editor of American Vogue, to photograph the lifestyle of the international High Society, which Horst did from the early 1960s through to the mid 1970s.
The classical fashion photographs of Horst P. Horst show his sense for geometric forms, strong compositions and his masterful use of light. He preferred to use medium format cameras, like Hasselblad and Rolleiflex, and work in a studio environment to allow him absolute control of staging and lighting. Amongst his most famous photographs are portraits of Marlene Dietrich, Coco Chanel, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Gala, Salvador Dali and Yves Saint Laurent.
During the 1980s Horst intensified his publishing and exhibition activities. Together with his assignments for the Italian and Spanish Vogue, in 1984 he was also hired by Vanity Fair. He had several major solo shows in the 1980s; Venice (1985), London (1986), Munich (1987), Bremen (1987), Frankfurt (1988), Hamburg (1988), Los Angeles (1989), New York (1989), Huston (1990), Toronto (1990) and Atlanta (1990).
Horst Estate in Miami, Florida manages the estate of the artist. Bernheimer Fine Art Photography represents Horst P. Horst at art fairs and exhibitions. In 2008 BFAP, in collaboration with the Horst Foundation, presented a solo exhibition at the Munich showroom, which was followed by further solo shows in 2012 and 2014.
Michael Kenna was born in 1954 in England and is one of the most famous contemporary landscape photographers. He now lives and works in the USA.
Kenna has set himself the goal to visit and capture remote places around the world. His way of working is deliberate, precise and often involves the use of long exposure times, sometimes lasting for several hours. With his camera and use of long exposure he captures what the eye cannot see; cumulative time. His carefully exposed black and white photographs, taken at dusk or night-time, are notable for their clear, structured compositions. His sense for mood and composition elevate his photography to art. Even pictures or landscapes that we are familiar with become transformed by his photographs into something new and unexpected. The photographic process is very important for the artist so for 20 years Kenna has used a manual Hasselblad camera (square format). He then refines his pictures in the darkroom instead of using digital image manipulation. Usually Kenna enlarges his prints up to a size of 20 x 20 cm. He has chosen this format deliberately, because it challenges the viewer to interact more actively with the picture in order to see minute details.
Michael Kenna’s photographs are published in numerous books; A Twenty Year Retrospective, 2002, Ratcliff Power Station, 2004, Michael Kenna Retrospective Two 2004, Mont-Saint-Michel, 2007, Huanagshan 2010, Michael Kenna Images of the Seventh Day Immagini del settimo giorno 1974-2009, Venice 2010, Shinan 2013.
Fall 2009, a major retrospective of Kenna’s work, was shown at the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris. In 2010 he had a single exhibition at the Palazzo Magnani in Reggio Emili. His prints are part of important collections such as the V&A, the National Gallery (London) and the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography.
In 2007 Michael Kenna’s photographs were showcased at Bernheimer’s Munich showroom. This was followed by further solo exhibitions in 2010, 2011 and 2014. His work also features in group exhibitions and at art fairs.
Silke Lauffs was born in 1969 in Hanau and studied interior design at the Kunst und Design Schule of Hannover. Whilst she was studying during the early 90s she began to teach herself photography. After working for some time as an interior designer in New York, she moved back to Germany in 1997 where she worked as a photographer on landscape, still life, fashion and portrait assignments for numerous magazines. Since 2000 she has become renowned as a photographer with solo exhibitions in Germany and other European countries. Silke Lauffs currently lives as an independent photographer in Berlin.
From her travels to India (2002) and Myanmar (2008), Silke Lauffs has created a poetical body of work exploring these exotic places, landscapes and sanctuary sites. Her pictures are reminiscent of long forgotten times. It is as if we could sense the ancient inhabitant’s feelings - their joys and sorrows. “This is the atmosphere that I wanted to capture - these rare timeless yet evanescent moments”. The photographs from Silke Lauffs’ India and Myanmar travels are not intended to be records of these countries daily life. They are impressions of a journey, taken in early hour emptiness, of these otherwise vivid and populous lands. The pale morning light fascinates the photographer and is intrinsic to the distinctive mysteriousness of her imagery, aided by her use of a panoramic camera for her photographs. Long exposure times create a slight mistiness in her black and white negatives that she later enlarges and adds sepia tones. Her photographic process results in breathtaking prints of tremendous depth. Her photographs are available as classical silver-gelatine prints or as platinum prints.
Between 2005 and 2007 Silke Lauffs created an impressive series that was commissioned by Bernheimer and the Schloss Fuschl Collection for which she choose to photograph the landscape of the Salzkammergut. It focuses on the passage of seasons in the untouched nature of Salzburg’s surroundings, lake Fuschelsee and the adjacent mountains.
Bernheimer Fine Art Photography represents Silke Lauffs. Her 2004 single exhibition was followed by two further single exhibitions in 2006 and 2009 and by numerous group exhibitions. The artist has also been successfully showcased at art fairs such as the Paris Photo.
Born in Kenya, (when it was still a colony of British East Africa) to an Italian father and a French mother, Mirella Ricciardi grew up in a household on the shores of Lake Naivasha. Her mother, Giselle Bunau-Varilla, was taught by Auguste Rodin. Yet her daughter was more interested in photography than in sculpture. Ricciardi worked for two years as a volunteer for the fashion photographer Harry Meerson, who taught her the fundamentals of photography and professional lightning, but above all how to see the world photographically. Some years later Ricciardi moved to New York where she further developed her skills before returning to her home in Africa.
Inspired by the surroundings of her youth at Lake Naivasha, known for the remarkable diversity of its wildlife as well as being home to native inhabitants of the area, she started to photograph the lives of the members of the local east African tribes. For her photographic project Riccardi choose to photograph the Kenyan tribes of the Samburu, Massai, Rendille, Turkana, Bajun and the Gala Boran, and to document their traditional manner of life. She was also interested in the particular beauty of these people and how they dealt with life and death cycles. The artist published a collection of her iconic photographs in her revolutionary book Vanishing Africa (1971), which is known as the first coffee table book with worldwide success.
Her unique photographs are often platinum printed. Platinum prints are coated by hand and able to capture subtle nuances in tonal scale, create a slight sepia finish, and are known for their durability.
In 2011 Blanca Bernheimer presented, in collaboration with Amina Ricciardi (the photographer’s daughter and founder of the Mirella Ricciadi Photographic Archives) a limited selection of large scale platinum and silver gelatin prints by the artist at the Munich gallery. Furthermore Ricciardi’s work is showcased at art fairs such as the Paris Photo and Frieze Masters.
Fritz Gunter Sachs (* 14 November 1932 Mainberg/Germany– † 7 May 2011 Gestaad/Switzerland) was a German photographer, film maker and art collector.
Sachs’ mother was Eleanor, the daughter of Wilhelm von Opel; his father was Willy Sachs, sole owner of Fichtel & Sachs, a leading manufacturer of ball bearings and one of Germany's biggest automobile suppliers.
Since 1972, Sachs was working professionally as a photographer, in 1973 he caused a stir with the first nude photograph for French Vogue. In 1991 he worked with Claudia Schiffer on the "Heroines" series. He gained international recognition in 1974 with a special show at the photokina trade show for which he also designed the official exhibition poster. In 1976 he was awarded the Leica Award. At the 'German photo days' and the photokina he received prizes for "Die Farbe Weiss" in 1994 and for "Die Farbe Rot" in 1995.
The focus of his photography are surreal nudes and landscapes, which were published in no less than seven image volumes. Early on, Sachs also experimented with digital photography. The proceeds from the sale of his photographs and illustrated books went into the Mirja Sachs Foundation, which helps children in need.
Sachs’ works have been featured in more than 40 international museum shows. In 2003 the Museum for Arts and Crafts in Hamburg paid tribute Sachs in a retrospective, in 2005 the Russian State Museum in St. Petersburg featured a show with more than 100 works of the artist of the last 30 years. In 2008 the Museum of Arts in Leipzig featured a comprehensive exhibition on the artists live and oeuvre entitled “Gunter Sachs – Die Kunst ist weiblich …” (Gunter Sachs – Art is female…). This retrospective became one of the most successful shows of the museum that has been founded 150 years ago. Further exhibition were held in museums such as the Tsarisyno-Museu in Moscow in 2009, the Frieder Burda Museum in Baden-Baden/Germany in 2009 and the Kunsthalle Schweinfurt in 2013 featuring Gunter Sachs works combined with works by international acclaimed artists such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Salvador Dali and Max Ernst.
Jan C. Schlegel
Jan C. Schlegel was born in the Black Forest region of Germany in 1965. He discovered his passion for photography when he was only 14 years old, after participating in photography workshop that was held at his school. He won the Agfa photography competition and was granted a place in Walter Schels class at the Staatslehranstalt für Photographie in Munich, which is where he discovered his love for black and white photography. Toni Schneiders, one of Germany’s most prominent post-war photographers and a friend of Walter Schels, also became an important mentor to the young photographer. At 18 he studied for a further two years at a photography school near Lake Constance to become a fully trained, professional photographer. Today Schlegel teaches at the University of the Nations helping students to find their own artistic style and often travelling with them to Africa and Asia.
From 1998 Schlegel has frequently travelled to remote places in Africa and Asia. He saw local tribal traditions being replaced by more modern ways of life and wanted to document these tribes’ customs before they vanished. His portraits are not staged, instead he photographs his sitters exactly how as he finds them. The only stylistic device he uses is a backdrop, hung to help him focus the viewer’s attention on the sitter, not their environment. Often Schlegel spends weeks with a tribe before he photographs them to forge relationships with them and learn about how their society functions.
Schlegel uses a 4x5 view camera (Ebony SV45 TI) on traditional analogue film and without any digital image manipulation. He enlarges his images on silver gelatine paper and tones each print with a mixture of chemicals that he has invented himself, making each print is unique. For maximum longevity he then tones the prints with selenium.
Bernheimer Fine Art Lucerne has represented Schlegel since 2014 and he has been very successfully showcased at the Paris Photo fair. He had his first solo show in the Munich showroom in summer 2013.
During the mid 50’s Jeanloup Sieff (1933 - 2000) worked as an independent journalist and fashion photographer for Elle in Paris. In 1961 he moved to New York where he worked and lived until 1966, when he returned to Paris. There, he made a career as a fashion, portrait and nude photographer with assignments by numerous important magazines such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Pars, Glamour, Esquire, Look and Twen.
Sieff created images that shaped the vision of generations and are icons in the history of photography. Sieff’s portraits of Yves Saint Laurent, Yves Montand and Astrid’s Back are famous examples of the photographer’s style – a mix of romance, melancholy, elegance and irony. The pictures show his longing for authenticity and beauty in portrait photography and how freedom and pleasure were an intrinsic part of his creative style. Throughout his life Sieff preferred to photograph in black and white.
His photographs are part of important museum collections such as the Centre Pompidou and the Musée de l’art Moderne in Paris. He was appointed as a Chevalier des Art et Lettres in Paris (1981) and was awarded with the Grand Prix National de la Photographie (1992).
Jeanloup Sieff has published several books of his work and exhibited worldwide at renowned museums and art galleries.
In 2010 Bernheimer Fine Art Photography presented a solo show of Jeanloup Sieff. BFAP also exhibited his work at the Paris Photo and Frieze Masters.
Christopher Thomas was born in 1961 in Munich and studied photography at Bayerische Staatslehranstalt für Photographie (Bavarian State Institute for Photography). He subsequently worked successfully as a commercial photographer and received several awards for the journalistic work he did for Geo, Stern, Süddeutsche Zeitung Magazin, Merian and other magazines.
He is also well known as an art photographer for his comprehensive series of large city views, called Münchner Elegien (Munich Elegies). Thomas continued to photograph several other cities in series such as New York Sleeps and Venedig, die Unsichtbare (Venice, the Invisible) and all his cityscapes contain certain atmosphere. He photographs important, recognisable places when they are empty, without the urban bustle which is often represented in 19th century photography. Thomas searches for the right places to photograph by dusk or dawn, when the inhabitants of the city are still sleeping. The photographer uses a large format camera, which forces him to work slowly and intensely, a tripod, a dark cloth and type 55 black and white Polaroids, but none of his photographs are digitally manipulated.
In addition to his city series, he has created another body of work called Passion, which he made during the rehearsal of the Oberammergau Passion Play. Thomas was not interested in the show as such; he was more intrigued by the striking individuals of the show who, in his opinion, were central to the extraordinary energy of this show. His photographs deliberately resemble Passion cycles of fine old masters such as Caravaggio, Zurbarán or Rembrandt. In 2011 Thomas received the silver award of the Art Directors Club Deutschland in the photography category for this series.
For his newest series #90 Cans Thomas photographed mundane, worn out metal cans that he has obsessively collected over the past fifteen years. With the use of colour photography he can detect the subtle tones of the cans, which he enhances by photographing them in front of a black backdrop.
Christopher Thomas work has been widely published and exhibited. Münchner Elegien was published in 2005 by Shirmer / Mosel and exhibited at the Münchner Stadtmuseum (City Museum of Munich, which specialises in photography). New York Sleeps was exhibited by Bernheimer Fine Art Photography in Munich; the Steven Kasher Gallery, New York; Fifty One Fine Art Photography, Antwerp and The Wapping Project, London. The book of this series was published in 2009 by Prestel (third edition 2011) and was awarded the German Photo-book prize. In 2012 Christopher Thomas’ Venedig, die Unsichtbare was published by Prestel and his Venice series was exhibited by Bernheimer. Furthermore, Prestel published Photographien der Passionsspiele Oberammergau in 2010.
Born 1970, Gregor Toerzs ́ background and training make his approach to art unique. He started his career as a trainee in advertising in his hometown Hamburg.
With nineteen he was drawn to Los Angeles, where he learned the lm craft from Academy Award winning special effect experts John Dykstra and Dough Smith; later he worked as a lighting technician and a cinematographer.
In 1993, he became Director of Photography, working with famed photographer Michel Comte and establishing himself in the world of advertising and fashion, working with major stars and commer- cial brands.
Today, Törzs mainly focuses on art photography and platinum prin- ting. He lives and works in Berlin.
In 2006 Törzs introduced his ne art photography with his series „Boy on Safari“, depicted in dark landscapes of surreal appearance entirely shot in dioramas.In his photographs one can see Törzs’ incredible ability to create striking pictures, using only the light at hand. His „Ciel Lourd“ series in 2008 is a continuation of his interest in photographing a world between the seeming and the being. For this series, he created a waterproof housing for his favorite old camera and spent hundreds of hours underwater. Törzs also took large matte paintings with him into the ocean in order to create these surreal underwater moments. A technique that was used in movies before computers took over the world of visual FX.
Throughout the years he has also been interested in microscopic photography, as can be seen in his photographs of watch movements, gemstones and insects. For his microtype series „Plus grand que Moi” in 2010, Törzs introduced the art of platinum printing to his work.
In this elaborate method of photography he creates his platinum prints with his own hands, adapting each sheet to the demands of his negatives. He often uses handcrafted Japanese paper, such as razor thin gampi paper. There are only a few labs worldwide that can offer and are capable of delivering these high standards of platinum prints, which is why Törzs’ dedication and mastery of such a complicated printing method adds another layer to his work.
In 2014 he designed and built the rst 9x14“ analog underwater camera in the world, the Ultramarine 914. With it‘s 24x36cm superlarge format negative, it captures an emotion of the underwater world in a way one has never seen before.
In addition to Törzs ́ underwater photography that year, he also introduced platinum photograms to his body of work. The series “Bliss“ is directly printed from glass plates which are treated with complex salt solutions. The results are extremely fine and fragile depictions of abstract naturally grown formations.
Gregor Törzs ́ work is regularly shown in solo and group shows as well as trade fares such as APAD and Paris Photo.
