Edgar Berg
Photographer

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. –Edgar Berg / interview, Ignant

    Anu Põder (1947-2013) is one of Estonia’s most revelatory voices of the last five decades. Her work has stood out since the 1970s as uniquely crafted, originally conceived, and deeply personal. Yet, because it was somehow out of sync with the then established art landscape in Estonia, it has been overlooked for many years. Põder is known for exploring the human body, highlighting the fragility, impermanence, and ephemerality of life (more…)

    The Ukrainian Museum
    New York, USA
    The Ukrainian Museum is excited to present the exhibition Peter Hujar: Rialto, opening on 2 May 2024. Peter Hujar (1934-1987) exemplified the downtown New York arts scene.
