BRANSCH photographer Olaf Blecker was inspired by paintings from old masters like Caravaggio when he created his personal work, "meditation in red". In this series, men are draped in scarlet cloth appear to emerge from the cloak of darkness, emulating the chiaroscuro technique with its high contrast of lights and shadows. The lighting and styling is natural in order to show these visages worn by time, woe, as well as, one inked with tribal markings.
For BRANSCH artist Steffen Jagenburg, it is always a magical moment when sound and motion add to the feel of his imagery. It is like giving life your own expressions.
It is a beautiful, welcome challenge to cover content in two different visual ways: still and motion. Steffen's numerous clients look for that - someone to use the same language in film and photography, combined with Steffen's great aesthetic sensibility and attitude.
BRANSCH artist Sven Schrader introduces his new showreel. It containes footage of several movie projects that he produced over the last two years. It shows his diverse work for advertising, music videos and private short films. As multifaceted with his motion as he is with his still photography, Sven's aesthetic informs both.
