PROFILE


DANIEL & GEO FUCHS are german artist couple, already started in 1992 their common photographic work. From the beginning they focused on producing series of photographs with a strong conceptual approach. Prerequisite for their work is an intense analysis of their chosen subject; the production of a series usually takes several months or even years of research, collecting of material, image selection and test runs. From an art historical perspective their oeuvre belongs to concept art; objectivity, staging, wealth of detail may come first in mind, if categorized, but in the end their artwork shows many more facets. In the beginning, until about 1996, the artist couple’s interest was concentrated on topics like ‘Homelessness’, ’Trans-Sexuality’ and ‘Mental Illness’. Until the year 2008 Daniel & Geo Fuchs mainly worked with large format camera and tripod, which represents a somewhat slow technique, considering that it is a relatively time consuming process. This approach and its execution nevertheless became the cornerstone for the characteristic style in their later work.
With the entry of new media the artist couple started in 2009 to experiment with digital techniques. Despite the alleged acceleration of the process nothing has changed since then until now, when it comes to the genuineness and rigor of the concept and creation and in the message of their work.
