Kilian Schoenberger (b.1985, Germany) - Cloud Forest
Kilian Schoenberger is a professional photographer & geographer, whose aspiration is always to cut his path as a photographer with an own creative perspective - despite beeing colourblind. “I recognized that I could turn this so-called disadvantage into a strength, too and developed my own unique photographic view: E.g. while getting a picture of a chaotic forest scene, I can’t clearly distinguish the different green and brown tones. Brushing aside this “handicap” I don’t care about those tones and just concentrate on the patterns of the wood to achieve an impressive image structure.” Schoenberger’s photographic work concerns the whole range of topics from natural landscapes to cityscapes. Remote rural areas are photographically as interesting as the lifestyle and architecture of urban melting pots. Both worlds fascinate the artist, and he tries to capture his individual view of these changing and challenging environments. For landscape photography he prefers temperate and high latitudes and alpine landscapes. He likes the harsh beauty of those areas and the peculiar melancholy that surrounds them. Mostly shooting with a CANON EOS 5D II and the 24mm and 17mm TSE lenses, regions which Schoenberger is interested in are Norway, Iceland, the Alps, Scotland, the Pacific Northwest, Saxon Switzerland, Kamchatka, Patagonia, New Zealand, the Altai Mountains, Canada and Siberia.
