Guenter Filzwieser

photo artist


My artistic approach lies at the interface between an objective media documentation of reality and its analysis.

The juxtaposition, journalistic strategy, documentary approaches and free artistic photography.

The analysis mainly correlates formal structural and subjective elements. ;-)




The best camera is the one you have with you.

Quote: (Eliott Erwitt). 





There are pictures that fail. But I don't take photos to put them in the drawer.

 They should be seen. I don't care if you love her or not.


 Quote: (Helmut Newton)




 I trust the same creative process that has been tried and tested by thousands of generations of artists before me. Patience.

Quote: (David duCemin)



An artist is someone who creates works of art as part of an artistic activity in the fields of visual arts, performing arts, music, literature or in one of their contemporary forms (in particular photography, film art, multimedia art, literary translation, sound art)
