Still Life, Objects, Spaces
Born in Germany in 1983, Johann Clausen is as much a child of the 80's as he is one of nature. Gazing deep into surfaces, his signature is HD, stripped of all glossiness. Clausen is interested in capturing the aura of things or, even more so, in providing objects with what they might or might not have in terms of one. In his still life and landscape photography, he amplifies what he sees as the communication of inanimate objects, focusing on them as agents or signs, rather than on their functionality. Clausen is self taught, and has had 10 years of experience in various photographic contexts and fields.
