My Friends by Dominik Schabel
In general, I think it is easy to understand my photography.
Though it is hard to express the subject or the atmosphere of my photographs.
In most cases, the story behind my pictures starts with my friends.
They are the subject of my images and the motivation to capture their antics and beauty.
None of them ever modeled before, which is one of the key points of my photographs.
I’m looking for the pure and innocent atmosphere.
For the moments nobody else sees.
And sometimes it happens that I capture the decisive moment. The moment of complete harmony and peace. The moment when the subject is at ease and everything you see is the reflection of his/her character.
My photographs are more than documenting the candid moments of our youth.
It’s the art of capturing the most beautiful scenes our precious universe composes.
