Item description for Olaf Otto Becker: Broken Line by Olaf Otto Becker, Gerry Badger & Christoph Schaden...

Olaf Otto Becker, born in 1959, worked for almost four years and covered thousands of miles by boat creating these photographs of the coastline of Greenland. The resulting images, made in the clear light of the midsummer night over long exposures, are worth the effort. Almost shadowless neo-romantic dreamscapes, they are unrealistically beautiful. Becker sometimes waits days for the right image or condition to appear in order to produce a single image--a process that leaves him with only about 25 photographs per year. Though visually diverse, all of the pictures share the contemplative character of their creator. Becker, who was once a painter, doesn't photograph scenery: He builds compositions, using his eye and his patience to develop a work of melancholic beauty, in the powerful iconography of the nineteenth-century landscape. He has exhibited widely in Europe, and his previous monograph was short-listed for the Rencontres D'Arles Book Award.

Reviews - What do customers think about Olaf Otto Becker: Broken Line?

becker, a genius of stillness  Jun 17, 2008
I was moved by Becker's work when seeing it in person at a gallery here in New York. So much so that I have recommended his work to several clients.
He has a graceful quiet eye, skillful editing and extraordinary patience to set-up and get the very best shot.

I love the book and sent it out as my client gift this past holiday season.
A photographic luminist of the highest order.  Feb 25, 2008
When I first saw Olaf Otto Becker's serenely beautiful landscapes, I couldn't help but think of the great American luminist painters of the late 19th century. Like those masterworks, Becker has produced images with an atmospheric luminance that often makes his subjects seem to glow as if lit from behind. But Becker is a German and no doubt has influences closer to home. Among those, his childhood near the Baltic Sea and his early studies as a painter seem likely to have informed his visual vocabulary. But whatever or whomever he may cite as artistic antecedents, the end result is a collection of elegant quiescent landscapes of exquisite beauty.
