Florian Albrecht-Schoeck, german artist, born 1980 in Darmstadt. Studied at the Universitiy of Art and Design Offenbach/Germany. Scholarship holder, for example, of the Kuenstlerhilfe e.V. Frankfurt or the Deutsche Boerse and HfG Offenbach photo award. His pictures are part of renowned art collections such as the Deutsche Börse Art Collection or the Museum für Kunst und Kulturgeschichte in Marburg.

One of the triggers for working with the medium of photography was Edgar Reitz’s „Heimat-Chroniken“ while still studying art in 2008. Inspired by his films he developed his way of taking photographs. He travelled through different countries and continents for his motifs. The pictures that are created are not to be understood as a documentation of a certain part of a country or a region: Through my photographic approach, the images are removed from their context and lose their place reference. His work is often focused on the search for definitions of roots, identity, origin and belonging – in the context of society, politics and individuality.

Over a period of ten years, approximately 20,000 analog recordings were made with a medium-format camera. During my travels I developed the negatives under a sleeping bag which served as a darkroom. He has now been working digitally and in colour for two years.

Florian Albrecht-Schoeck, Deutscher Künstler, geboren in Darmstadt 1980. Studierte an der Hochschule für Gestaltung Offenbach am Main. Stipendiat unter anderem der Künstlerhilfe Frankfurt sowie des Deutsche Börse und HfG Offenbach Fotoförderpreises. Seine Bilder sind Teil renommierter Kunstsammlungen wie der Deutsche Börse Art Collection oder dem Museum für Kunst und Kulturgeschichte in Marburg.

Mitauslöser mit dem Medium der Fotografie zu arbeiten, waren noch während seines Kunststudiums im Jahr 2008 die „Heimat-Chroniken“ von Edgar Reitz. Inspiriert durch seine Filme entwickelte er seine Art zu fotografieren. Er reiste für seine Motive durch verschiedene Länder und Kontinente. Die Bilder, die dabei bis heute entstehen, sind aber nicht als Dokumentation eines bestimmten Landabschnitts oder einer Region zu verstehen: Durch seine fotografische Herangehensweise werden die Motive ihrem Kontext enthoben und verlieren ihren Ortsbezug.

Im Fokus seiner Arbeit steht oft die Suche nach Definition von Wurzeln, Identität, Herkunft und Zugehörigkeit – Im Kontext von Gesellschaft, Politik und Individualität.

In einem Zeitraum von zehn Jahren entstanden mit einer Mittelformat-Kamera ungefähr 20.000 analoge Aufnahmen. Die Negative entwickelte er noch während seiner Reisen unter einem Schlafsack, welcher ihm als Dunkelkammer diente. Seit zwei Jahren arbeitet er nun digital und in Farbe.
