Dania Reichmuth, Winterhtur Member Since October 2008 Artist Statement I am an Interior Designer / Photographer who enjoys taking on an array of project types. I have a degree also in Art. I welcome any challenge that provoke my creative thought. I began photographing about five years ago, and soon became captivated by the craft as a means of articulating my innermost emotions. Since that time, I have developed a particular interest in macro photography, still life,portraiture and floral photography.
Photography fills a creative void for me. I have explored all kinds of creative arts over the years – watercolor, oil painting and ceramic- these things have gone with me through life and all hold a special place for me. But still, they don’t quite touch that part of me that wants to ‘draw’ the real world as I see it around me.I don’t just go out looking for pretty pictures – I search for patterns that repeat, for flowing movement, for undercurrents that subtly define a subject. I look for shadows and reflections, and contrasts, and interesting juxtapositions. Even in faces I look for the defining angle, the personality revealed, that glimmer of life looking back at me through my viewfinder. Photography for me, therefore, is just another way of being in the world.
My lifelong passion for our natural world motivates me to create images that I hope you will find emotive and inspiring. I hope my images will inspire you, to get closer to nature, capture its beauty and enjoy its peace and tranquility.
