photography

Patrick Bogner lives and works in Strasbourg. He is an independant photographer since 1982 and shares his time between professional photography and personal artistic creation.

Since then he has been focusing his work on the function and the theatricality of places.

His favourite themes are about the Elsewhere, this somewhere else which is not distant but which is the other side of a place, its invisible side; an elsewhere within an area that needs the photograph to be embodied, to become visible.

He also has an interest for areas and populations where he senses a metaphor for human existence and is particularly fond of the indigenous lans of Latin America where he has been conductiong projects since 1987. SInce 2006, he got attached to the notion of Vanity and built a collection of images on this matter with a wooden box camera and its black cloat, unlike photographers of the 21st century. His aim is to ritualize his work and to impose slowness on himself.

In 2009, the experience of a POL (Photographic Observatory of Landscapes) opened him up new propects.
