POESIE

"WHERE HAVE ALL THE FLOWERS GONE"

BOOKS

Originally from Saarland, Germany, i live on the tip of the Medoc Peninsula on the French Atlantic coast.
I have been fascinated by photography and the power of images for almost 50 years and have practiced classic art photography on a wide variety of topics.
Inspired by many art books of my father I caught at the age of 12 years in to paint and to draft.
Architecture and art fascinated me and I quickly realized that these media would affect my life.

Given the evilness of this world, I only photograph the beautiful things on earth!

ARTIST STATEMENT

PORTFOLIO
Moments, otherwise easily passed, are caught and they become real. That‘s the magic of photography! Today anyone can take pictures ...

But only a perceptive person can draw with light, master the shadows, capture the beauty, grace or charm of a person.
My inspiration comes unexpectedly and the most beautiful pictures are often conjured up by chance.
I express myself through pictures. Through photography I speak and compose.

TECHNIQUE:

JORG BECKER SOLO EXHIBITION EVEIL DU PRINTEMPS
I work with very fast lenses with a long focal length, sometimes with zoom lenses.
When taking photos, I often move the camera very quickly while simultaneously zooming. Often with multiple exposures.

All images are taken in RAW format without camera image processing and without automatic.
I then develop the images using a RAW converter and edit the colors and contrasts without manipulation by image editing software until I have the desired result.

BIOGRAPHY

Originally from Saarland, Germany, i live on the tip of the Medoc Peninsula on the French Atlantic coast.
I have been fascinated by photography and the power of images for almost 50 years and have practiced classic art photography on a wide variety of topics.
Inspired by many art books of my father I caught at the age of 12 years in to paint and to draft. Architecture and art fascinated me and I quickly realized that these media would affect my life.
At the age of 16 years I discovered the images from Doisneau, Brassai, Ronis, Hamilton, Sieff and other famous photographers.
I bought a single lens reflex camera, a photo lab and learnt to develop photos, tried out the different films and experimented.
Exposure, focal length, point of view, moment, distance, film delicacy, lighting conditions, a variety of factors that make up a picture.

In the beginning of the 2000s disappeared many of the good films of the market. A very big incision in the photography. And at the beginning of the digital photography it seemed that the artistic photography would become possible for everybody.
Really the difference became even clearer by the digital photograph between click photos and art photograph.

Since 2004 I take a photo digitally without automatic and without camera image processing with light-strong objectives exclusively in the RAW-format.
I develop the pictures like in analogous times, but now digitally. Almost all effects already originate with the admission of the picture without digital manipulation.

In the 90s I published many photo books and had several exhibitions in Berlin and Saarbrücken.
After I stopped working as a freelance architect with architectural offices in Berlin and Saarbrücken in 2016, I focused entirely on art photography again.
I will do more exhibitions in the Médoc, but also online.
I also intend to publish more books.
