about the artwork
"How to manage the impossible – AI vs human imagination"  Will we grow up in a world with AI? How does it change our perception and our creative work as photographers and creatives?    As we grow up in this world, we must confront the reality that our future is uncertain, and that our relationship with AI will play a significant role in shaping that future. We must also come to terms with the fact that the world we inherit will be shaped by the choices we make today, and that we must make wise decisions about how to integrate AI into our lives in a way that serves the greater good.    This is the challenge of humanity in the age of posthumanismus, where the lines between human and machine are becoming increasingly blurred. It is up to us to ensure that AI is developed and deployed in ways that are ethical, responsible, and ultimately beneficial for all of us.     www.lindaschaeffler.com | Instagram.

about the artwork
Tobias Habermann's latest project, „Clouds“ - transparent patches within opaque environments , is a unique blend of street photography and digital art that cleverly captures the essence of our relationship with nature in the urban landscape. The series features a lone cloud floating against various urban settings, and the artist describes it as "transparent patches within opaque environments." The cloud, which is usually relegated to being a mere backdrop in traditional photography, takes center stage in this work. It hovers at human height, catching our attention and sparking our curiosity. The cloud's presence is both surreal and intriguing, and it invites us to ponder its meaning and purpose. The cloud serves as a reminder of the natural world amidst the concrete jungle of the city. It is a stark contrast to the man-made structures that surround it and highlights the disconnection between humanity and nature. The cloud's transparency also serves as a metaphor for the fleeting nature of life and the impermanence of our existence. Habermann's use of digital art techniques adds an extra layer of meaning to the series. The manipulation of the cloud's shape and form creates a fantastical and poetic atmosphere. It also serves to emphasize the cloud's otherworldly nature and the sense of wonder it evokes. In conclusion, Tobias Habermann's project Clouds is a thought-provoking and visually stunning series that challenges our perception of the natural world and our place within it.

about the artwork
Mame and More, these beautiful siblings. I often take photos of them and love to see how they grow and change. How they act in front of the camera. These two are so amazing. I love to repeat photoshoots with the same people, establishing a connection with them. To capture them for personal projects, editorials and campaigns. Here for Milk Magazine.

about the artwork
SYNCHRONIZATION is my current self-portrait project, which combines elements of photography,  performance, land art and digital art. I seek out unique locations, whether they are famous or unknown, and incorporate compositions featuring different positions of my body within the landscapes. I interact with nature and align my movements with the lines, geometry, and colors of the places I visit. For me, this project is also a performance, usually lasting between half an hour to an hour. Sometimes, I have an audience, and other times it's a personal interaction with nature. Technically I use digital processing to create these works, combining multiple images of myself taken from one point into a single composition. However, all images are real representations of my body's movements during this prolonged performance. I am the protagonist of this project and the only model. This project combines everything I love - traveling in search of unique places, my love for nature, and my desire to be not only behind the scenes but also in front of the camera. Each shoot for this project is an unforgettable experience, an adventure. I have to wake up before dawn or travel somewhere in the middle of the night, overcome my shyness if there are onlookers at the shoot, overcome the weakness of my own body that is tired and doesn't want to climb up that high mountain, overcome the cold, rain, or heat. And this overcoming is the most important part for me. I grow with the project with each new shoot. Creating each piece takes several weeks or even months - from conception to implementation - preparing for the trip, scouting locations on site, exploring all the possibilities, actual shooting (fortunately, my partner and friend Irina helps me in the process). Then, many days are spent creating the final composition. I multiply several photos taken within half an hour to an hour into one, and thus demonstrate a shifted point of view on space-time. The viewer can see the long process instantly. This project is also about harmony and connecting with nature. It came to my mind as a reaction to the pandemic when we were locked up in our apartments in the cities. I wanted to feel the freedom and energy of nature again. And this is a certain responsibility - to convey this harmony in such a complex visual form, where every element of the composition is in its place. The naked bodies in my works are more of an abstraction, and I do not use the sexualization of nudity. The absence of clothing means the absence of ties to style, place, and time, something personal. Nudity allows you to speak in the language of eternity. And the body in my works is a continuation of the lines of the surrounding environment. Another important layer for me in this venture is that I came from commercial photography to art photography at a fairly mature age. I am now 44 years old, and I want to show myself and other women that age is not a hindrance to bold decisions, changes in life, and creative growth.
