Ricardo Dutkowiak | 1996 Menden (D)
I use photography as the medium to communicate my interest in emotions, memories and identity. Fascinated by psychology and how exactly emotions and memories are created I want to clarify which impact they have - for myself and for the viewer. Through the use of my camera and by creating interactive installations I immerse the viewer and project very personal stories or feelings onto them.
Leading and reoccurring threads in my work are the relationship between memories and reality, identity and how our society is drastically influencing them.
Moreover, I am eager to create a balanced combination of aesthetics and concept, in my personal projects as well as in commercial work.
