Bernd Grundmann Hamburg photographers

Bernd Grundmann combines technology and imagination to cultivate an unpretentious minimalist style. Respecting the needs and concepts of his clients, Bernd is frequently called upon to solve sophisticated projects which have resulted in images as diverse as a series of post-mortem insect portraits, dramatic configurations of steering wheels, and jet propelled lipstick.

His successful corporate work in Switzerland has brought extensive experience of advertising and editorial photography. Aside from cosmetics and jewellery, food recently became his favourite field. Last year, Verlag Süddeutsche Zeitung and Collection Rolf Heyne both called upon the photographer to supply images for a series of books focusing on food - its origins, creation and presentation, the people who make it and the places in which it is enjoyed. The series is populated with stunning and well observed images; from the candor of a chef's smile, to the artistic presentation of a canapé, Bernd's attention to detail transforms a subject that has been covered many times before into a true delight for the senses.
