Hasseblad lover, Berlin aficionado, black & white enthusiast, traveling man & entrepreneur.  Joined the photography club & lab in 2012  and constantly acquired more & more analogue photographers to build up a community to share knowledge and enthusiasm.

Shooting film is like slow food, it’s all about passion. It is about concentration, knowledge, it’s working with real material, it’s about standing in a darkroom in the middle of the night and wrecking your first roll of film by winding it up incorrectly, it’s about curiosity when waiting for you negatives whilst processing, it’s all love.

I am a story-teller, a photographer and a spectator.

 My story began in 1990 in a country called Lithuania. At early years, music was a big part of my life. I played piano for over eighteen years, but photography was always near. I took pictures of my friends and home town. It is a part of my life, a story and a memory that I hold on to.

 Piano studies didn’t exceed my expectations and weren’t something that I imagined it would be, so I decided to change my profession in to a hobby and a hobby in to a profession. Wondering about the future and looking for a place to settle, I moved to Germany and started my photography studies at University of Art and Design.

 I am interested in peoples relationships. No matter if it is between a man and a women or a daughter and a mother.

“Telling stories is as basic to human beings as eating. More so, in fact, for while food makes us live, stories are what make our lives worth living.” — On Stories, says Richard Kearney

Als weltfremden, unzufriedenen Mediengestalter mit einer Begeisterung für Kunst und Technik zog es mich 2010 nach Berlin. Ich absolvierte dort mein Fachabitur, wurde daraufhin Student für Druck- und Medientechnik und als Freelance Media Designer beruflich tätig.

Heute verfolge ich bei meiner Annäherung an die experimentell-inszenierte Fotografie überwiegend eine düstere und sinnliche Ästhetik. Dabei bediene ich mich u.a. Einflüssen der Genre Mixed Media und Collage. Ich liebe Bilder mit surrealen, unbequemen und atmosphärischen Wirkungen. Alles was seltsam, außergewöhnlich oder spürbar ist.

Black & White photography is, by its very nature, abstract.  Using elements of physics (infrared wavelengths) and chemistry (chromoskedaisic solarization), however, I try to make monochrome photography even slightly more abstract.

But I know nothing.

“There are no bad pictures; that’s just how your face looks sometimes.”
― Abraham Lincoln

An eccentric (not at all) and exotic specimen from the Andes (Peru), son of gods (Mom and Dad), during ages worked digging holes on the mountains and extracting everything he found. Now, retired from this endeavours, he experiments with all this mysterious materiales that he took.

“You don’t take a photograph, you make it.” ― Ansel Adams

Literally, in my work as an artist, I tend to physically create the photographs, I use different materials and processes. The Experiment and failure, are a great deal for me.

Christoph Boecken fotografiert Menschen. Seine Portraits vermitteln eine Nähe ohne Aufdringlichkeit. Die unaufgeregte und ruhige Art zu fotografieren zeigt sich in authentischen Abbildungen ohne übertriebene Posen oder unnötige Requisite. Seine Vorliebe für Schwarz-Weiß-Fotos und natürliches Licht verleihen den Bildern eine Zeitlosigkeit und Beständigkeit, die sich wohltuend von den kurzlebigen Moden der kommerziellen Portraitfotografie abhebt.
