Marion Eckhardt : IMAGINATIONS - German silver screen stars arranged and photographed by Wolfgang Wilde

Hamburg-based photographer Wolfgang WILDE presents a series of 25 large format photographs of German actors to mark the 2009 Berlinale. Wolfgang is active on an international scale and is famous for his shots of celebrities, managers and politicians.

Wolfgang’s photographs are precisely staged. Digital photo retouching is almost exclusively used for colours, as most of the scenes are photographed just as they are. The cinematic element of his pictures is emphasised through his choice of format. He orientates himself around the landscape format of the silver screen and implements his choice of image size as a style element. The smallest shown picture’s size is 116cm X 155cm.

It is the first public display of his portraits of theatre and film actors, including von Hannelore Elsner, Udo Kier, Eva Mattes and Karoline Herfurth. Guests invited to the private view include Maria Furtwängler, Dominic Raacke, Til Schweiger and Johann Lafer.

The exhibition is supported by Urania and GoSee member RECOM ART (www.recom-art.de). The prints were produced as digigraphs on Epson Traditional Photo Paper material. The exhibition is curated by Marion Eckhardt. The Urania is one of Berlin’s most popular event locations, with a unique education and culture programme.
