Maximilian Gessler is a German photographer living and working in Günzburg, Germany. He completed his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Nuremberg with a diploma and as a master class student of Professor Marko Lehanka. In his conceptual work and experiments, he uses and combines both analog and digital photographic techniques. The central question in his research as a photographer is: What is the essence of photography?
About the book:
In his diploma thesis “18 diptychs of photographic research” photographer Maximilian Gessler questions the material and technical foundations of photography by means of experiments. This underlines their duality, which is the basic condition of the reproductive medium photography. The resulting, mostly abstract, images are often only revealed to the recipient through the image title and the accompanying text.
