Every time Mr. Joachim Baldauf presses his shutter button he has not only a set vision of what he might capture, no, he already has meticulously and yet effortlessly art directed the entire editorial of the magazine or campaign. The German photographer’s work is driven by his knowledge in the fields of graphic design and publishing. His photographic language is timeless and classic never missing the contemporary edge. The final work illustrates deep beauty in an unpretentious manner making light and form merge unapogetically. Currently, he shot a studio series with model Alex Wek.
