Timo Wilgen is already at the age of 13 interested in photography, the first contact with this medium he had at his local school. Here he learned in extracurricular activities the classical photography from scratch. Just not only taking pictures and sharpening the eye, also the work in the darkroom to develop the films and make some positives. Because of the costs he learned fast to focus on taking these pictures only, that are really the good ones. Thats whats influenced him most. The aim is not to takes 1000 ordinary pictures, the aim is to take one great shot in a session. Any sufficiently advanced photo is indistinguishable from magic.
His main genre he specialized in is the architecture with the geometry and forms. His work does not reflect the reality, it is rather merely his interpretations of memories. In this approach is founded his style, that runs through all areas of his related work.
Besides the strict geometricle work with buildings he is also interested in people-photography, here is his main emphasis the extraordinary scenery, nearly sureal representation of the human body in relationship to the surroundings.
