Private View by Lars Kemnitz
The idea was to capture something of the 90’s fashion spirit and wrap it into dreamy, otherworldly and seductive (in some cases even provocative) retro imagery. There is a strong contrast between the often blurry color pictures – taken with a SLR and through glassware – and the black and white flash pictures – taken with a 90’s point-and-shoot camera on expired black and white film. The clash of these two very different aesthetics makes the story visually exciting. Lars Kemnitz

Lars Kemnitz (b 1988) is a visual artist and creative director based in Hamburg, Germany. Since he discovered his passion for photography at university in the late 2000s, he has continually been shaping and developing his own visual language and vision. Today he also experiments with the medium of film which seems natural as his fascination for cinema has always served as a major source of inspiration; it reflects in his work when he blends cinematic story-telling with fashion, documentary and art influences to explore topics mostly dealing with the imaginative, the mystical, the cryptic, the suggestive and the subconscious.
