Daniel & Geo Fuchs

 Daniel & Geo Fuchs took their joint photographic work back in 1992. From the very beginning Daniel & Geo Fuchs concentrated on photographic series with a very conceptual character. The prerequisite for their work is an intensive examination of the chosen subject. Each production of a work series usually takes several months or years of research, motive selection, material collection and test runs.

From an art-historical point of view, their oeuvre is attributed to conceptual art. Their work can be found in the field of practicality, detail richness and staging, with work far more multifaceted.

In the initial phase, until about 1996, the interest of the artist couple concentrated on complex themes such as the homeless, transgendered or mentally ill. Until 2008, Daniel & Geo Fuchs mainly worked with a large-format camera and tripod, a rather "slow", in the sense of time-consuming technology, which laid the groundwork for their subsequent work in their approach and implementation.

With the arrival of new media, the artist couple started experimenting with digital techniques from 2009 onwards. In spite of the supposed acceleration, however, nothing remained of the seriousness and care in the conception and design as well as in the testimony of their works.
