ACHIM BEDNORZ

The photographer Achim Bednorz from Cologne has been covering art history for international publications for over 20 years. He’s made a name for himself as a specialist for rooms of worship.

The principle behind his method of interpretation is simple: to get as close to reality as possible. This means presenting the object in well balanced directed light, making the object recognizable as if in ideal circumstances, and foregoing any special effects.
