Moritz Partenheimer Biography
The German artist Moritz Partenheimer, born 1979 in Munich studied at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar visual communication and Photography. In 2005, he was in an exchange scholarship at the Pratt Institute, New York, where there was a project-based work with Duane Michals.
In his work, identity and presence of the people express the design of the appropriated space and shaped landscape that appear in his photographs as artificial. This artificiality increases by the frequent use of motifs and nocturnal places, illuminated by their own light sources. The often encountered a model of architecture leads to irritation in his work in terms of the reality of places and playing with the symbolization of media developments. Moritz Partenheimer images are excerpts of found situations – at the same time they are precise compositions of colors, surfaces, lines and structures in which pairs or group relationships of things play a role.
