Victoria Knobloch is a German photographer who concentrates on black and white portraits, travel photography and meditative landscape art. 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 natural beauty of life and wants to show that all humans are part of the same essential “oneness”.
Her photography is located in the events of life and she captures the world as it is and portrays humanity as it is. Yet her pictures are deeply moving with a poetic touch and aesthetically pleasing. With each photograph she celebrates the uniqueness of every moment. And she simply likes to be outside in the world, observing how crazy, wonderful and truly amazing it is. Further she is always in search of tranquility, beauty and meditative landscape moods. With this she invites the viewer to pause, contemplate, observe and reflect, if only for a brief moment. This is also enhanced through the black and white style, since black and white photography is an ascetic form of photography that automatically reduces the stimulation of the senses. 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.
