Stefan Heyne

GERMAN, B. 1970
Heyne is a practitioner of a new approach to photographic abstraction in Germany. With his usually large-format works, Heyne departs from traditional photographic conventions. There exists neither an interpretable object nor a contour on which the in-focus or the out-of-focus can be fixed. Insofar as these parameters do not become the subject matter of the image, the motifs – evade our routines of perception. Heyne's works play with the bewildering aspect of the apparent and in this way they explore the conditions in which photography is perceived.[2] Therefore, they can also be seen as a powerful contribution to the current discussion of the philosophical concept of a new realism.
