Photography is an art and as such it allows free interpretation, experimentation and invention.
When art meets a curious, dreamy, idealistic and inventive man whose instinctive creativity is boundless, incredibly technical pictures can combine with total freedom of expression.
One quality that Heinz Schattner has many times expressed in his photographs – both in his works of art and in the advertising – is the gift of synthesis. His stories are captured in clear, tidy images, almost bare in their intensity, so much that they have the power to carry the viewer in a distant, dreamlike and surreal world, where everything can become real.
A dynamic mind, never static, always unpredictable, a desire to live that allows no breaks.
There’s no point in asking Heinz Schattner which one of his photos is the best, the answer would be predictable: “I still haven’t taken it”.
