Artist Statement

LIGHTART BERLIN represents Fine Art photographer Johannes Walther.

Faszinated by the potentiality of photographic fiction, he investigates the borders of the medium. It is where the image as a mirror of reality merges to the non-representational.
His visual concept discovers concealed light phenomena, extracts novel visual dimensions and generates spiritual spaces.

In his pictures he explores the area of tension regarding an aesthetic oriented Abstract Photography.

Johannes Walther lives in Berlin, Germany. He works wherever light attracts him.
