With a perfect mastery of the photographic technique that he has been practicing for fifty years, Christian Vogt explores all the specificities of the medium and its evolution. The photographer wonders about the changing relationship to reality, the spectator’s involvement in the aesthetic emotion, the discourse between text and image, the importance of the size and scale of the print. His photography is entirely commited to desire, to the marvelous possibility of freezing time, to the amazement of seeing the moment of shooting becoming an image. But it also allows the photographer to question reality and its perception, to confront the visible to its photographic interpretation.
Christian Vogt completely accepts to create an illusion of reality, filtered by the physical-chemical device of the camera and the printing. He ponders precisely about the work produced, its size, its printing technique and its edition. He selects his photographs with an extremely strict criteria keeping those that meet his ambitious quest: to see beyond the visible.
