Victoria Knobloch is a German photographer who concentrates on black and white portrait art and documentary work. She wants to welcome the viewer into the exploration of our complex existence with more awareness and therefore a spirit of importance, astonishment and appreciation. With her simple and direct photographic approach she is revealing the uniqueness of our everyday experience and the natural beauty of life.
Her work embraces the fields of vanishing cultures, ancient traditions and contemporary culture alike, yet the human element is the continious thread. Further she is always in search of tranquility, beauty and meditative landscape moods and aproaches them an a poetic way. With this she invites the viewer to pause, contemplate, observe and reflect, if only for a brief moment. These brief moments suggest to a sensitive or spiritually inclined person the invisible but felt beauty of unity. The usage of composition, lighting, use of contrast, and various other aspects are playing an important role. Further she wants to leave her motives as "natural" as possible and uses the computerized finishing methods only in a very subtle and refined manner.
Despite the difficulties we face in the modern world her goal is always to refer to what is good, so her images are motivating and are showing the strength and enormous positive potential of mankind and the universal human dignity in all of us. Through contemplation on her work one can feel the own creative power within oneself. She is also interested in portraying artists, actors, writers, directors, musicians and all other people who do express themselves by their profession. Victoria Knobloch works as a freelance photographer and invests a lot of time in personal projects. She gives workshops and photography lectures. Next to photography she works as a classical singer and filmmaker.
