The perfect composition of the images conveys a feeling of transcendence by Ralph Graef (previously featured with Decaying Bathrooms series), gifted fine art photographer and a cell biologist from Postam, Germany. “With my photos I want to stimulate the imagination of the viewer and to tell a story that emotionally touches him, since sensing emotions is the prerequisite to keep pictures sticking in the viewer’s mind”, he says. Ralph prefers available light and clearly composed pictures with a discreetly arranged motive. He uses digital cameras and analog medium format cameras with a wide range of lenses ranging from extreme wide-angle to telephoto and plastic lenses, and almost always a tripod. “Yet, to me the type of camera used to take the picture is usually unimportant”, he explaines.
