FASHION AND PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY WITH AN EMPHASIS ON ANALOG APPROACHES

Known for his surreal, dark and mystic portraits, Oliver Blohm was recently hailed as
“one of the most interesting upcoming photography talents in Germany” by FLAIR Magazine.
Working on the fine line between painting and photography, his experimental image making
produces unique effects which challenge the borders of traditional analog processes.
The unconventional approach he employs has carried his photographs from Iceland to India,
the USA to Russia and earned him a place in Zitty Magazine as one of Berlin's
new artists to watch in 2016.

Born and raised in a little village near the Baltic Sea in Germany,
he moved to Wismar to study Communication Design with a focus on photography.
After locking himself in the darkroom exploring alternative techniques during
his years as a student, Blohm moved to Berlin to explore new paths and put his
theory into practice. Having access to more diverse subjects in the German capital,
he could finally begin to search for new identities to create his characters.
Taking light as one of his main sources of inspiration and as his most important tool
at the same time, he uses the camera as an extension – inhaling the moments he creates
and transforming them into works of unconventional beauty.

For the last two years it has been Blohm's dedication to the art of large-format 8x10 photography
that has earned him a name for himself in the photography sphere. Similar to his microwave manipulations,
his innovative techniques using Impossible film materials have captured the interest of collaborators and
clients from around the globe – even to the far reaches of the desert in Qatar.
His works have so far been featured in various publications from around the world,
and placed in exhibitions all over Europe alongside artists such as Gerhard Richter,
Georg Baselitz, Markus Lüpertz, Rose-Lynn Fischer, Ellen von Unwerth, Allison Mosshart and Jack White.
