German photographer Walter Kober is best known for his portraiture, landscape and still life work. For this artist, composition is the fundamental key to his work, often offering a different perspective of his topic by emphasizing the obscure. In many cases his approach is to focus on one element and use it as a “sprecher” that reaches out and draws in the viewer.
His still and architectural photographs capture the feeling of a object by highlighting the fundamentals of specific details. His landscapes portray the mood of a given moment in a given place. His portraiture encapsulates an instant in time while revealing an aspect of the subject’s personality.
Currently, Keszler Gallery NYC is showing a series of large portraits on canvas of model, singer and ex French First Lady Carla Bruni.
Walter Kober currently lives and works in New York City and Munich Germany.
