Series: Flaxen Diary– since 2003
Original prints: 170/190 x 110 cm
I am often asked ‘’what“ it is it that I photograph. I am never asked about the “how.“ If you were to ask Van Gogh what it was that he painted without knowing his style and he were to answer “sunflowers“ – would you be any the wiser? – Christian Vogt
Series: Photographic Notes – since 1981
Originals are hand-written and in limited edition
(image-size ca. 13 x 8 cm)
“At the age of eighteen I wanted to be a photographer and to be regarded as such; later, that wish faded. Despite my decades-long dialogue with the medium, I still do not regard myself as a photographer. Perhaps I would be better described as someone enamoured with the medium.
“Riding a motorcycle without being a motorcyclist“ was the text of one of my first Photographic Notes.” – Christian Vogt
