With position instead of pose and a reduced and elegant composition that continuously toys with the subconscious, Armin Morbach‘s photos are attracting a growing international audience. His conceptual aesthetic, the way in which he plays with exaggeration and leaves nothing to chance, both surprises and provokes.
For the past two decades, Morbach has been an in-demand stylist, defining an international look and a universal understanding of beauty. He has worked with the best photographers, including Michel Comte, Patrick Demarchelier, Karl Lagerfeld, Ellen von Unwerth, and Peter Lindbergh.
Driven by a desire to continue developing his artistic expression and to perfect his visions in presentation ? his visual language ? five years ago he took the next logical step and picked up a camera. Today, he can already boast an impressive portfolio.
Accepted into F.C. Gundlach’s photographic collection in 2011 and also included in Gundlach’s curated exhibitions ? at the Multimedia Art Museum in Moscow and the Kunsthalle in Vienna ? Morbach and his work are now part of the NRW Forum’s “State of the art photography” exhibition and are represented at the “En compagnie de Guy Bourdin” retrospective at the Deichtorhallen in Hamburg.
