Patrick Ems, was born 1980 in Zurich. Twenty years of photographic experience, he has become an award-winning fine art photographer, known for his unique black and whity style.

All his photographs follow a clear line, which could be charaterized as pure, clean and reduced. The focus fully lies on content and the resulting impressions and emotions. Like an introduction chapter, his images open a scenery to the viewer’s imagination, leading them through an atmosphere of various thoughts and feelings. At this point the image itself becomes an entry point to a virtual journey.

While as a photographer he strengthened his skills and widened the possibilities of visual expression, he got honoured on multiple international photo award contests, including the title of best Swiss photographer at the Sony World Photography Awards in the year 2014. Influenced and impressed by visual arts, martial arts and philosophy, it has become an integral part of his life to express himself through images and to make a statement in this fast moving superficial world. His photographs shall decelerate his viewer and open a moment of contemplation.The following project called „Clarity“ was shot during winter 2016 troughout Switzerland. This photographic extract is characterized by purity and simplification using a high-key minimalism style. Fascinated by winter, no other season enrobes nature’s counter face in such a subtle and tender way giving the observer an unknown almost mythical access to the world. [Official Website]

AImagine: the new Era of making Art ?

We are experiencing a turning point; indeed, I would say a revolution in the artistic disciplines, especially those relating to visual art; it is the beginning of a new Era in which the current paradigms will no longer be valid, in which reality will be questioned or modified through alternative realities.

Terra Mater – Ode to My Family by Marco Castelli

Words are not inherently suitable to embrace any even blurred concept of time, and beside all speech being made nowadays around the sense of family, its true nature belongs to the undetectable trace we leave through centuries, and to our relationship with time itself.

Sleepless by Rebecca Sexton Larson
