The photographic work of the internationally renowned Austrian photographer Andreas H. Bitesnich (b. 1964) is captivating by its beauty and aesthetic sensitivity. His nude photography does not bring eroticism to the foreground but transforms the naked bodies of his models into sculptures. Bitesnich’s work is carefully framed to highlight the elegance of his subjects. Bitesnich began photographing in 1988, dedicating himself to a ten-year autodidactic training to perfect his craft. During this time, he gained profound knowledge of photographic theory, subsequently setting new standards in the genre of nude photography. Bitesnich opts for reduction and models the body like a sculpture using light and shade. He composes his photographs geometrically and develops very balanced image structures. Nonetheless, the photographs remain soft and emotional. As well as nude photography and studio portraits, Bitesnich has a passion for street and travel photography.
