Introduction
About the Work

Moments Unexpected – Berlin

In the Berlin subset of Johannes Weinsheimer’s Moments Unexpected series, we see the monuments of the German capital with unexpected intensity and vigor. They stand still, letting time flow over them. At the same time, they become part of the movement, realized with the bustling pace of the metropolis.

A born Berliner, Weinsheimer knows the city inside and out. Not only does he know its hot spots, he knows the best time of day to photograph them. In his work, he captures the spirit of the city as he experiences it: with lots of color and movement.

About the Artist

The photographer’s trademarks are exaggerated colors, playing with light and shadow, and a special technique he calls using a “virtual putty knife.” This gives his pieces their extraordinary, characteristic verve. He softens hard lines and softens contrasts, transforming what is known and tangible into a dynamic ensemble. This approach is inspired by abstract painting. Weinsheimer grew up in a classic artist family and studied design at the University of the Arts in Berlin. There, he took up painting before starting to work with a camera. These roots in painting guide his hand, when he uses the virtual putty knife to add zest to monuments like the Brandenburg Gate.

In Johannes Weinsheimer’s hands, solid structures become an abundance of movement. He portrays the world through vivid colors and soft forms. In his artwork, the Brandenburg Gate merges into the movement of passersby, its beige hues becoming one with the dark color of the ground. These elements do not stand separately next to each other; they are connected in a fantastic way.

Weinsheimer finds his subjects on his extensive travels, especially in major cities from New York and Hong Kong to Düsseldorf and Munich, his current home. With a keen instinct, he finds the cities’ most important and impressive locations. At the same time, he always keeps a lookout for potential in the colors and tension he can resolve. “I want to create moments of relaxation and lightness while you are viewing the pictures,” the artist says. Now he has reinterpreted his hometown, Berlin, through his personal technique, capturing it for everyone to see.
