Nino Herman

In his recent works, Nino Herman tries to develop a new way of seeing, one that flows between the figurative and the abstract, towards a point of confrontation that is unplanned and unscripted. His works develop out of a need to express the complexity of our inner and outer reality. While his street photography is very influenced by cinema, his landscape photographs are more influenced by the language and abstraction of painting.
