Artist statement and personal vision in art photography and photographic art.


Fine art photography in black & white and color with a vision. Award winning photo artist Thomas Finkler is mostly inspired by the nature and countryside near his hometown. Short distances to the favorite hot spots make it possible to watch the interplay of light, shades and color through the seasons.


Twenty years of professional experience as a graphic designer had a big influence on his photographic view. His style can be characterized as a search for mood and minimalism, with a keen eye for light, forms and details. By making use of techniques like intentional camera movement or shallow depth of field, Thomas Finkler adds a abstract, poetic and sometimes also melancholic note to his works. As a wanderer between the photographic worlds he always considers his possible motives under both aspects – black & white and color. This is also an important part of his vision and inspiration during the many years of experience in post-processing – the fascination how color and monochrome compositions differ in their visual and emotional imagery. 


The artist considers digital post-processing techniques, known as fine art composite photography, just as important as the shooting in itself. With this unique combination – professional photo artist with decade-long experience as graphic designer – Thomas Finkler creates and "designs" his own personal vision in fine art photography. Since 2018 he is also inspired by multiple exposure photography techniques, combining abstract surfaces and patterns with photographic art of nature and landscape. Many art photography images and all series are created both in color and monochrome.


The awarded fine art photography series "dramatic skies" (monochrome and color), "blurry trees" (monochrome) and "seasons in the woods" (color) are very much dedicated to his first life as a graphic designer – always trying to find the balance between order and chaos.
