Amelie satzger

New German photography


With pride we present for the very first time in a representative show the spectacular and astonishing self - portraits of the young german photographer Amelie Satzger

Amelie Satzger, born in 1995, currently lives in Munich and Berlin. Interested first in archaeology, her attention soon turns to the subject of photography on which she is completely focused now. In addition to her activities as a free photographer and model, Satzger studies photo design at the Munich university. Her own dynamic and almost manic approach to the photographic medium is-not least-based on a personal traumatic experience of loss, which Amelie reflected and worked up successfully by the very personal way of exploring herself with a growing number of strange (self-) photographs.

Amelie Satzgers photographs are almost exclusively self-portraits. They show her in surreal and irritating environments and arrangements which are an exciting contrast to the distinctive sense of aesthetics that mark all works of the artist.

Many of Satzgers works show her as part of landscapes witch, at first sight foreign to us, inspire her to series of photographs.

The results are for instance "Fleeting World", a group of works arising from Amelies voluntary work in Nepal in 2015 or the series of self-portraits in cooperation with designer Stephanie Mages, named "Olymp", on the occasion of a trip to Island.

Primary forum and arena for her photographic shots are for Amelie Satzger at the moment still in particular the various online platforms and social media spaces. But that has now changed, since well-known photo-journals such as "The Storm Magazine" have become aware of Satzgers outstanding photographs.
