About Werner Pawlok
Journey to enchanted locations with Werner Pawlok and get lost in his powerful, vintage visual vocabulary! Pawlok shows us historic spaces that have maintained every bit of their seductive charm. Pawlok’s artworks depict the buildings and rooms exactly as he finds them; nothing has been moved or rearranged for the sake of his pictures.
Discovering Remnants of Colonialism
Feel the magic of New Orleans and discover relics from the era of French colonialism. With its unique past, the city radiates an entirely singular atmosphere we associate with Jazz, voodoo, Mardi Gras, and a lot more. Enjoy the incomparable beauty of the Birthplace of Jazz.
Werner Pawlok visits present-day places to listen to the tales of their past. During his second trip to New Orleans, he took the stunning photos Casa Borrega II and Preservation Hall, in which we can feel the music. Pawlok once said that, to him, the city feels like an island within America.
The Allure of Havana
You can also experience the colonial beauty of the Caribbean metropolis, Havana. Pawlok’s works bring us under the spell of the city, where former luxury is only discernible as a relic of the past. Palaces from the old sugar aristocracy show their weathered countenances. In the decaying buildings, the artist captures more than the city’s morbid charm; he also pinpoints the vitality of its residents. Time and time again, Werner Pawlok finds old places lost in reverie, then snaps them back to life with his photographs.
I am always interested in new things. If I am no longer interested, that means I am dead.
Born in 1953, Pawlok first picked up a camera at sixteen years old. Since then, he has looked through the lens into the heart of many rooms and the depths of many souls. In 1980 in his hometown of Stuttgart, Pawlok founded the first photo gallery in Southern Germany. At the end of the same decade, he ran a photography studio in New York. Pawlok later returned to Stuttgart, where he lives and works today.
The intensity and vibrant color with which Pawlok portrays his subjects are what make his oeuvre absolutely one of a kind. He is known for his interior photography as well as his celebrity portraits and fashion photography. Through international solo exhibitions and group shows alongside art legends including Andy Warhol, Gerhard Richter, and Sigmar Polke, Pawlok’s work enjoys wide recognition around the world.
