Jennifer Vahlbruch - Fine Art Photographer

My photography is a pendulum between our reality and fantasy worlds derived from it.

I’m entitled to create honest and authentic images, capturing the essence of my subjects and telling their stories in a powerful and beautiful way. I love to give new importance and meaning to old, everyday or overlooked objects.

I am also fascinated by what we consider impossible, and I strive to make images that evoke a sense of wonder and possibility. I experiment with techniques such as panoramic photography or ICM to create new perceptions of reality. In compositions I combine extractions of reality to create real fantasy worlds that nevertheless do not exist.

I hope my work will inspire others to see the world in new and exciting ways.
