Bio­gra­phy

Kor­bi­nian Vogt (born 1995) from Munich is one of the most remar­ka­ble figu­res in young Ger­man pho­to­gra­phy. Com­ple­tely unim­pres­sed by the fact that the female nude in land­scape no lon­ger played a role in pho­to­gra­phy from the 1960s onwards, as it was the epi­tome kitsch, flir­ting with fascism and reflec­ting a tra­di­tio­nal role beha­vior, Vogt devo­tes to this topic, but wit­hout any socio-cultural imp­li­ca­tion: only the ele­ments of nature feel har­mo­nious to him, the absorp­tion of the naked body in them goes wit­hout say­ing for Kor­bi­nian Vogt, as well as deli­be­rate com­po­si­ti­ons that cap­ture the aes­the­tics of the spe­cial moment. Toge­ther with his female models, he hikes through the care­fully selec­ted, mostly Nor­dic loca­ti­ons and then pho­to­graphs them as nudes in front of brea­thta­king moun­tain back­drops or in inhos­pi­ta­ble ice land­scapes.
The urgent ine­vi­ta­bi­lity of this motif makes it clear that it‘s ulti­mately viru­lent inner images that the artist visua­li­zes. That aes­the­ti­cally exag­ge­ra­ted truth of rep­re­sen­ta­tion lends his pho­to­gra­phic works a magic beyond authen­ti­city that the viewer can­not escape, they “brace them­sel­ves against being lost and the­reby open up a visual level full of little mira­cles. His mira­cles — bet­ween soli­lo­quy and tales ”(Olaf Unverzart).

Kor­bi­nian Vogt

I came to nude pho­to­gra­phy, espe­cially in nature, because I per­so­nally feel that there are fewer and fewer land­scapes that are really untou­ched, and that people do not really per­ceive nature unless there‘s an ele­ment in it that they have seen before. For me, nudity is natu­ral. I think that espe­cially wit­hout clo­thes, people are really the per­son they are. You can’t hide behind your clo­thes. This is exactly some­thing that has to be shown somehow, the people them­sel­ves — wit­hout all these hide-and-seek games.“ (Inter­view in the video fea­ture for the TV maga­zine „Hei­matrau­schen“ [„Home­land rust­ling“] of the Baye­ri­scher Rund­funk, 2017)
