Different sizes in Din A1 format 59.4 x 84 cm and 160 x 115 cm | The “Tree Crowns” series was named Gold Winner at the Tokyo International Photo Awards in 2018. In 2017 she received first place from the expert jury at the FIX Photo Awards in London. In 2015 she won the audience award at the 125LIVE Awards supported by Olympus in London. In 2015 she was added to the Best Photos of the Year selection at the Kolga Awards in Tbilisi, Georgia. She also received 10 additional Honorable Mentions in top-class and international photo competitions. This photograph impresses with its special attention to detail and closeness. It is put together from 25 – 35 individual recordings. The number of shots depends on the size of the tree. This creates a record of an encounter over a period of time, compared to a snapshot in conventional photography. The appearance of the tree remains untouched. With this special technique, Christoph Franke wants to transfer the energy of the natural tree into the photo. Christoph composes the treetops “upside down” in order to invite the viewer to an encounter with the natural being of the tree, instead of - as usual - classifying it with the mind into common experiences and expectations. He is fascinated by the look of trees in winter, with their network of branches extending from the inside out.

Christoph Franke

Christoph Franke is inspired by the idea that photographs, like water, store and release energy. Influenced by his encounter with the alchemist and photographer Marino Lazzeroni, he pursued the idea of ​​transferring “Zen in the art of archery” to photography and pressing the camera shutter release in the moment of oneness with the subject. He is particularly interested in the concept of polarity. In this idea, mutual poles such as above and below, light and shadow, hot and cold or yin and yang are interdependent and form a whole. They reveal reality as we know it and make it possible to perceive a material world. His photographs have been exhibited in galleries, museums and festivals in Germany and internationally in England, France, Spain, Georgia and China.
