Gilbert Weidinger, Dresden, Germany Member Since November 2008 Artist Statement Since I started to take pictures a couple years ago, I have learned to see my surroundings much more intensively. That's what I like most about photography: that it opens one's eyes to the beauty of the world. That's why I also mainly take pictures of nature. And being a photographer motivates me to go that extra mile to be at a beautiful plave at sunrise or sunset, when the light transform the landscape into a surreal, magical place.
I shoot both digital and on Fuji Velvia slide film.
I've lived in Seattle, USA, from 2002 - 2006. Now I'm in Dresden, Germany, where I work as a scientist.
