Born in Germany in 1983, Johann Clausen is as much a child of the 80’s as he is one of nature. Gazing deep into surfaces, his signature is HD, stripped of all glossiness. Clausen is interested in capturing the aura of things or, even more, in providing objects with what they might or might not have in terms of one. In his still life and landscape photography, he amplifies what he sees as the communication of inanimate objects, focusing on them as agents or signs, rather than on their function. Clausen has over 10 years of experience in various photography contexts and fields from working with arts institutions, fashion and luxury brands to exhibiting his own practice, which has been shown in galleries in Germany, the United Kingdom and Lebanon.
