Johannes Knuth Stills + Motion Hamburg photographers

Johannes Knuth’s images appear to have captured the light of a thousand summers, holidays and weekends. His motifs embody an immensely intense sense of joie de vivre. These are short films from a world that coexists with the everyday, a world in which Johannes slips into with his camera. He manages to stage his models in such a natural fashion that the viewer almost feels as if he wasn’t actually there taking the photos. His images thus celebrate the most wonderful parts of life: the joy of the moment.

Born in 1979 in Herdecke/Ruhr, Johannes preferred seeing the world through his lens even as a child. After finishing school he moved to Miami, then to New York, always hot on the heels of the world’s best photographers. He returned from his travels armed with plenty of bounty - in particular a talent for staging a certain lightness.

Johannes has been represented by Christa Klubert Photographers since spring 2013.
