My name is Dennis Gelner and I am an Analog nude art & Portrait photographer working in munich and berlin
After working as a full-time digital photographer for years, I started realizing, that this was not the way of photography that made me happy anymore. I started feeling more and more like a digital mass producer than an actual photographic artist.
I started generating some kind of antipathy against all that extreme beauty retouching and pretending to be over perfect stuff. Originally I wanted to show the real beauty of people and doing crazy, provoking artworks. But what I did more and more was the total opposite.
That was the time when I decided to stop supporting this mass marked of over perfecting persons to an unreal level. There is so much natural beauty out there. Also, I always loved the medium of photographic film, since in my opinion it fits my images extremely well and is a very honest medium. Also, I love the whole process from creating the idea to preparing, shooting, experimenting, developing the film and finally creating a real hand made darkroom print.
Besides that, I especially enjoy having learned to take way more time to get to know the person that I am shooting with. This deeper kind of relationship helps me to create even more honest and beautiful images.
Being authentic is extremely important for my shots. While i think, that it is ok to stage a shot, i would never stage or change the behaviour of the person in the shot.
Ok enough talking. Now just enjoy my works and don´t hesitate to contact me
