Götz Sommer (born 1969), highly experienced still life photographer based in Hamburg, Germany, stands out due to his precise photography of objects.
His clear-cut and often purist pictoral design invites the viewer to discover the substance of what is depicted.
Although his independent projects explore a number of different topics, his late art studies at the HFBK – University of Fine Arts of Hamburg, pursued parallel to his studio work, have a lasting impact on his commissioned work.
Götz Sommer and Ilka Teige-Zuzak (Styling) have dissociated traditional sports from their metaphorical language and translated them into contemporary still life photography.
Through the associative styling, in combination with a very reduced and clear approach, the focus of these sports is thus pulled to their essence.
