Magic Places – photography by Florian Westermann

Exhibition by ‘art place berlin‘ – forum for contemporary art

in the Park Inn by Radisson Berlin-Alexanderplatz

September 10th – November 21st, 2014

 

For Florian Westermann (b. 1980), photography is an ongoing process of self-discovery, learning, and following a deep desire to go out and explore the world. Photography is much more than producing a lasting memory for him. It gives him the opportunity to give artistic expression to the portrayal of nature and habitat characterized by his view.

His passion is to discover and capture the breathtaking spectacle of landscape and light, wherever on earth he may find it. It is to these magical places that Florian Westermann wants to lead the viewer emotionally and communicate their beauty, grandeur and drama. He wants to show that the unbelievable is reality and is really there.

 

Florian Westermann grew up in West Berlin and witnessed firsthand the fall of the wall. Reunification and the city as a rapidly changing melting pot influenced his childhood and youth. Already in this context, he developed a very strong interest in photography. After leaving school, he started his career as a business journalist in 1999. On numerous journeys, he also had the opportunity to devote himself to landscape photography and to discover new, fascinating places over and over again.

Over many years, he managed to teach himself the knowledge that he needed as a photographer. Passion was just as key to his success as his willingness to spare neither expense nor effort in search of the best moments of nature.

 

"Photography is a fire that burns inside my heart and will not let me go. In pristine nature, I find something that is larger and more important than ourselves" – Florian Westermann. Since 2014, he lives and works in Munich.

 

'art place berlin' is the forum for contemporary art and intercultural projects at the Park Inn by Radisson Berlin-Alexanderplatz since five years. It offers the opportunity to encounter current international art to over 30,000 monthly guests and visitors. The changing exhibitions show artistic positions in painting, photography, and works on paper. The exhibitions can be visited daily from 9 am - 9 pm with free admission on the ground floor and the 1st floor. All information on: http://www.art-place-berlin.com
