Uwe Langmann is a German fine art photographer born in 1985. His photographic works deal with the points of intersection between pure photography and classical fine arts. He started his career behind the camera as a director of short and documentary films. However, since early 2010, Langmann has dedicated himself solely to photography. His works transcends the ordinary and reveals the poetry in everyday life. Inspired by filmmakers, 'light artists' and Japanese culture, his body of work radiates abstraction and minimalism.
Langmann is very interested in the grey areas where the lines between photography, abstraction and painting are blurred. The concept of “emptiness” from Zen-Buddhism plays an important role in his work. As in the classical Japanese ink paintings, he uses this emptiness in his photographs to create certain spaces for the viewer in which they can project her / his own thoughts and feelings into the images.
His works have been shown in many national and international exhibitions as well as art fairs like Art Karlsruhe. Langmann has won many international awards, most prominently Photographer of the Year at OneEyeland Awards, FineArt Photographer of the Year at the Black and White Zebra Awards and a Gold Medal at the Moscow International Photography Awards.
