Reinfried Marass, Austrian, professional photographer, born 1960 in Vienna. At age of 18 I went for several month to Egypt and the Sudan. I had no camera with me, but was so inspired I started photography upon my return and after my graduation as mechanical engineer.
Image composition is one of the basics in my photographic work. The positioning and relationship of points, lines and areas in my photographs is influenced by the ‘German Bauhaus’ that combined crafts and the fine arts and operated from 1919 to 1933. Beyond that I use ‘Fibonacci Harmonic Levels’ for composition.
There exists an unwritten contract, a form of a codex, between the photographer and the viewer. A photograph must reflect the truth. A photographer must be credible. No lies. Raw and honest.
