About Horst & Daniel Zielske
Experience cities like Berlin, New York, and Shanghai in an enchanted, almost unreal atmosphere! Horst and Daniel Zielske take stunning photographs in the breaking morning light while most people are still at home sleeping. Enjoy artworks that strike a perfect balance between nostalgia and reverence for progress, between traditional landmarks and futuristic architecture.
The father-son team often works in heavy fog or amidst cloudbursts to intensify the mystical mood. While the pieces emanate a captivating lightness, they are all the product of intense effort. Every single photograph is meticulously conceived and exactly planned. They use a PhaseOne camera to make sure the images they capture are razor-sharp and have the most vivid color. Using long exposures of up to 20 minutes, they create a dramatic mood. The pictures feel as though they are interwoven with history. Join the Zielskes on an adventure into a Dickens novel or a William Turner landscape!
Like Father, Like Son
The Zielskes have a true sense for finding the essence of a subject and capturing magical moments for all eternity. The father and son work in perfect harmony on each piece. “We share one vision,” says Daniel Zielske. The Zielskes work on completely even footing and know what the other is thinking without him ever having to say it. Their creative partnership has spanned over 20 years of respect and harmony.
We're like two painters working together on a single picture, but our easel is a camera.
Horst Zielske was already a professional architectural photographer when his son was born in 1972 in Göttingen, Germany. When Daniel was a small child, Horst began bringing him along on his assignments, so Daniel could get a feel for the work. The flame of passion leapt from one generation to the next, and the father and son have been working together like a well-oiled machine since 1993. They have published twenty photography books.
LUMAS Curator Christoph Bamberg says: “We’ve been successfully working together for more than ten years, and yet I am constantly amazed by the Zielske’s multifaceted portfolio. From romantic landscape photography to citiscapes packed with tension, every piece makes its own unique statement.”
