Carsten Witte's Dyptichs

September 05, 2012


In his Dyptichs series, Hamburg, Germany based photographer Carsten Witte investigates the relationship between woman and nature, highlighting echoes of curve and form by juxtaposing female body and plantlife. 'Already as a little boy of three he gazed after beauties that were passing by when he was walking at his mother’s hand. Many years later, after he had attended the Bielefeld School of Photography, worked as an assistant for renowned photographers and started his career as a freelancer with his own studio in 1989, he could finally dedicate himself exclusively to taking shots of women’s bodies, their eroticism and chasteness and the sensual play of shadow and light.'
