Edgar Berg is a German photographer and filmmaker based in Paris.
It often doesn’t seem like it, but I always spend time thinking about the composition, or an idea, a story. When it comes to lighting a scene I am looking for something that makes it feel like a warm hug when you look at it.
I love to play with fashion but would never give it the main act. I rather use it as a tool to add a splash of color or to accentuate movement.
I really find it hard to describe my style of work, as it always depends on the project and the story. What I can say for sure is that when I work with groups there will always be an invisible, intimate bond between the subjects that you can feel.
