As an artist, Norbert Schäfer is fascinated by the representation of movement and time and the boundless interplay of sharpness and blurriness: “How do we see? And how much does the image in our head have to do with reality? These questions have always interested me in addition to my work as a portrait and advertising photographer”. Norbert Schäfer’s photographs are often the result of different movements of subject and camera. The complex motifs play with reality and abstraction. Through layering and overlapping, paintings of light are made in contrast to conventional photographs. Norbert Schäfer – a well-renowned photographer and artist.
