Biography
Known for his sublime forests, Michael Lange is a German artist who has been practicing photography since the late 1970s. He lives in Hamburg. His photographic fiber embraces an aesthetic worthy of German romantic poets. After three years of strolling in the German forests, Michael Lange signed a series endowed with a refinement of high flying. The excess, added to the darkness, impresses, as much as it spells. He seizes the silence and leaves a mystery unfathomable. Nature, clothed with striking beauty, borders on the anthropomorphic character. The photographer plays the mythification of the forest, a place crystallizing our buried anguishes, or our primitive dreams. Between myth and reality, what is the place today of a space uncontaminated by civilization? How can we rediscover the poetic, virgin and disinterested gaze of childhood? "Her images are distinguished by their timeless way of capturing nature that seems both mythical and real. Concealing their secret, its forests draw from the dawn or the twilight a concentrate of light almost tender. A question comes up again and again: how can silence take shape in the image? "Writes Christoph Schaden. His series of photographs of undergrowth are grouped in a book of high flight (Wald Landscapes of Memmory). He works closely with several prestigious newspapers: Times, Newsweek, Fortune ... as well as with industrial companies.
