Georg Hübner, born 1962 in Vienna
In 1993, after many years in music, I turned to photography. Impressed by the expressiveness of high-quality fine art prints, I devoted my initial years to the fundamentals of photography and my interest for positive and negative techniques, as explained in the literature from Ansel Adams.
Several years later, after excursions into various segments such as infrared,
landscape and spontaneous snapshot photography,
I developed my own style, influenced by Czech photographers Michal Macku and Jan Saudek.
In November 2002 I began combining "classical" analogue and digital photography. Many of the expressive possibilities, before only obtained through incredible efforts in the dark room, were now at hand, and yet more precise and time-saving than previously.
Pictures occupy my thoughts long before they are transposed. Experiences, feelings, dreams.... these are the material from which the real forms arise. With the aid of files of my own and others, as well as 2D and 3D - programs, the final picture is created.
The challenge for my finished images is to project and represent those fleeting moments of joy and fear, of high and low spirits, of fun and madness....
