Dirk Brömmel

MEDIUM: Photography and Digital Art
CITY: Wiesbaden, Deutschland

Dirk Brömmel is a German photographer who lives and works in Wiesbaden. He has a university degree in Fine Arts and owns a diploma in Communication Design. His artworks have been exhibited and recognized worldwide, among them at Art Fair Paris, Cutlog Paris, Berlin List, KIAF, Art Beijing and many other important galleries and art centers.
His particular point of view, the developed technology, the digital processing of his images and the conceptualization of his collections makes Dirk’s artwork unique. His visual art works defy the rules of gravity and spatiality. They transport the viewer to a different reality, with a new perspective, in which an object is isolated by a digital process and is embedded in colorful background, in this way the object is transformed into an exceptionally inspiring work of art. The series “head first”, has been recognized widely and moved the artist in an international context. The artist photographs cargo ships, ferries, Venetian gondolas and boats in various shapes and sizes repeatedly from above, and reassembles the pictures digitally afterwards.
From antennas on rooftops, over the floating markets of Thailand, to the gondolas of Venice, Artig Gallery presents an exciting series of impressive photographs, that have one thing in common: they portray transportation devices with different content from the distinguished perspective of the remarkable artist.

Photographs in Lambda-Print (C-Print) on Diasec/Aludibond. All works are produced in strictly limited editions of three to five pieces. For exact edition numbers, please see work description.

“Photographing means to me keeping hold of things while they are vanishing. I want to visualize the movement of time by showing what it takes away and changes.”
