About

The photography led me to my study of visual design, my experiences as a designer help me to express myself photographically - in pictures, exhibitions and books. Everything flows together into my work as a teacher, from which I may learn more than my students.

Statement

What interests me most in photography is the possibility of transcendence, of transforming the one into a completely different one, which offers the possibility of telling a drama on a scale from black to white, without having to have an event.

Andreas Trogisch | Replies (1982 - ongoing)

Andreas Trogisch | Replies (1982 - ongoing)

“Replies” is a great inventory of the images created until the publication of the book of the same name in 2014, which can not be summarized in a clearly defined thematic context, but rather revolve around a virtual center that I still can not precisely define. Dividing the images into “conversations” made it possible to master the multitude of images: as in a table talk, they circled around a topic for a while, then turned to the next, associatively connected one. The series continues to grow like a black and white coral reef.

Andreas Trogisch | Runway (2011 - 2018)

Andreas Trogisch | Runway (2011 - 2018)

The photo project “Runway” shows runway markings of the former Berlin Tempelhof Airport in a ‘objective’ view, without a change of light, shade and perspective that comments on the subject. This exposes the actual changes the material suffers, the decay, the arbitrariness of matter in the form of gravity, corrosion or erosion. What should actually be pure white, sharp and just limited surfaces, actually appears as a jagged, dramatic micro landscape, which can be read musically in picture form.

Andreas Trogisch | Vineta (1985/1990)

Andreas Trogisch | Vineta (1985/1990)

“Vineta” mixes two series of pictures from the GDR: portraits from the year 1985 and cityscapes from the year 1990. The motives mark on the one hand moments from the last years of the GDR, on the other hand the beginning of my photographic work. This is also expressed in the formal divergence of the series, the later of which clearly shows my search for formal clarity and a determining role of light. The book of the same name was published by Peperoni Books in 2016 (and unfortunately out of print).

Andreas Trogisch | Pinakothek (2012 - ongoing)

Andreas Trogisch | Pinakothek (2012 - ongoing)

I try not to say “that’s how it is”, but “this is a picture caused by something that for a brief moment looked like it reminded me of something”. ‘Pinakothek’ is the current sequel to the series ‘Aphasia’, which was published in 2016 as a book. This would have been my next book project at Peperoni Books, had Hannes Wanderer not died in September 2018.
