about Lena Weisbek


Lena Weisbek lives and works in Germany near Munich. She creates atmospheric and minimalist depictions of landscapes and natural motifs. Lena Weisbek studied Art and Communication Design, worked as a designer and art director before deciding to follow her passion - Photography.

 

Today, Lena Weisbek works in the gernre of Art Photography, creates various series and developes concepts on themes that captivate her deep interest. She cultivates and refines thereby her own abstract and minimalist style. Lena's "slow" photographs with their subtle moods and details leave the viewer room for his own perception of a world behind the image, for contemplation and for the retreat from a hectic world.

 

Her work has been exhibited and is represented by galleries all over the world.

 

"I want to reveal the soul of a landscape or an object, not by capturing a specific moment, but by showing its nature, its unique beauty, by exploring and showing its poetry and its mystical mood.“
