About me - Birka Wiedmaier

When I picked up my first digital camera and started exploring the world around me with it in hand, it was to keep memories of my walks. But soon I realised that with a camera in hand I paid more attention to details and the people around me. I was just fascinated and this fascination never left me.
I tried various genres; street photography is one of it I am attracted to. The people of a city, town or village bring life to the place and give it a face. I like to capture them in candid moments, unnoticed. But I also like to experiment and use my camera for more abstract photography, such as double exposures and long exposures.
The pictures I take are my very personal view of a place or situation; they are far away from being objective. But this is what I consider the beauty of photography. We all often visit the same places but leave them with a very different set of images. My work shows this as well. It is my take on a place, my interpretation of what I consider interesting and beautiful. Often, I ask myself; "Why do I photograph a certain person or situation?" One approach is my interest in the story behind; why is this person here, where is he/she going? Thus, I make up my own stories about the people and places I photograph. Hopefully my images make people think about and question a situation too.
