Fotostudio Heimo Mauser

SOMETIMES A CIGAR IS ONLY A CIGAR

To follow a truly personal view is the only real luxury. True Colors Photography is about preserving the pic as a precise function of reality.






HEIMO MAUSER IS OFTEN SEEN CLOSE TO A SOMEWHAT enigmatic "NEOVERISMO SELETTIVO". he does art at his own terms, unsettled in style and difficult to classify. his pics are pure contemplation. Those who are sufficiently interested in his work will be smart enough not to ask for clarification and willing to form their own interpretations.

as an artist he feels sympathetic to honest bastards like Brett Weston or Slim Aarons:

Ding-dong the witch is dead

Ding-dong the witch is dead

Brett Weston - the wunderkind of american photography, naturally masculine, unharmed by politics and ideology, untroubled by issues of gender emerged as an enigma of modernism. a man who stood alone - open, sincere and innocent, inspired by the magnificence of nature. not exactly a creature of art critics, but unmistakably genuine and positive. is he for real? critics, who weston always disdained, are still making up their minds (www.brettwestonarchive.com).

slim aarons never made a big thing about creating high art, which is why his friend and protégé, the photographer Jonathan Becker says, "He had no pretensions at all about what we're doing. He kept reminding me, 'It's all bullshit’“. as a consequence the art world tries hard to ignore him (www.photos.com/best-sellers/best-of-slim-aarons).

amongst others heimo also admires andreas gursky, Jeff Koons, ralph gibson, aaron siskind, jacob aue sobol, mario giacomelli, sebastiao salgado, peter LIK, jan saudek, andreas feininger, rudolf koppitz, man ray, richard avedon, david lachapelle, nick brandt and magnum-founder henri cartier-bresson (www.jeffkoons.com, www.parisphoto.com, www.photolondon.org, www.thearmoryshow.com).

Gott erhöht die niedrigen und stösst die mächtigen vom Thron
(fortuna favors the honest bastard)
