Bernhard Handick

Bernhard Handick is a young German artist and art-director of Shoutout-Magazine. With a German father and a mother from Sri-Lanka, Bernhard grew up in a multi cultural environment which he enjoyed a lot. He’s currently studying at the Folkwang university, working on his finals to get his diploma. Bernhard approaches photography as sculpting; arranging a picture like a painter and compose different sounds and layers like a musician. A little Q&A:

What is your preferred shooting set up?

Me, my camera and an external flash-light. I love the moments when I see a model in their private room for the first time. All my senses become hypersensitive when I combine the objects with the people I photograph. It’s always exciting. Respect and an absolute sensitive handling is the most important theme for my set up.

If you could fill-up a swimming pool with anything you’d like, what would that be?

Nothing, just me. These are the moments when I close my eyes, hold my breath, dip into the water and just listen to me. A wonderful way to relax and charge the battery.

Do you have a specific goal with your photography?

I love to create candy for the eyes and mind. I want the viewer to sit in his own directors chair and write his story with my ingredients.
