Chris Sedlaczek (*1965, Vienna, Austria) produces elaborate photographs in limited editions and conceptual artworks. Sedlaczek invites you to join him on his journeys into nature. His works establish a link between the landscape’s reality and his perception and imagination. All works focus on the intimate beauty of thoughts that surround our real existence. By applying the abstraction of his vision, he creates intense personal moments.

 

They are masterfully curated by means of light, subtle shadows and color, infinite details drawing the viewer's attention. Distant and near fractions are mounted together, traces of shadows are brought to light to finally represent Sedlaczek's imagination of the photographed scenery.
