Eclectic approach in the photographs by Erli Grünzweil

L'approccio eclettico nelle fotografie di Erli Grünzweil | Collater.al 11

Erli Grünzweil approached photography at the age of fifteen when he began to photograph small hardcore punk and screamo concerts in the Austrian countryside. Moved by a great curiosity towards the world, the artist has an eclectic attitude that combines street photography with still life; later the scenes are readapted and amplified by using Photoshop.

  “With the combination I question photography as a medium and mechanism of commerce and politics.”

He recently worked on a political project concerning Austria and its relations with Europe, which will be published soon. Each work has its own personality and its own way of existing; he himself defines the creative process with the following words:

“It starts with an idea, an object or a topic and an urge to photograph or realize it—taking pictures, selecting, combining, editing/manipulating, taking pictures again, sequencing and before and between thinking and re-thinking.”

Inspiration can come from anything: the street, a book, politics, television. Everything inevitably is part of the reservoir of ideas that come out of sensations, emotions and cultural stimuli in general.

You can see Erli’s work on his website, keeping in mind that everything is constantly evolving and is bound to grow.
