INTRODUCING HANNA PUTZ
I was born in Vienna, Austria in 1987. I left Vienna by the age of 17 through my work as a model and moved to Paris after I finished school. Since then I mainly lived between Paris, London and New York. Growing up in Vienna ment a lot to me and it still does. Vienna has a rich cultural history and I find that Viennese people have a very dry sense of humour, and they’re usually quite grounded. The simplicity of my photographs often reflects the honesty with which I was raised. I just turned 24. Working photographically for me is essentially ‘talking’ in my own visual language, thus becoming an exploration of both the inner self and exterior surroundings, so the goal of my work has always been to try to clarify that visual language to such an extent that I would eventually reach an understanding between the two, or at least set up an interesting dialogue.. This is my close friend A. and her family. I shot them in paris were I stayed at her place and spent a wonderful time with her..as allways when im with them. I especially admire the works of the Artist Roni Horn aswell as Philip Lorca di Corcia, Rineke Dijkstras and Taryn Simons. Within my close personal sourroundings I really like the works of photographer Thomas Lohr aswell as Daniel Sannwalds, Amira Fritz´s and last but not least Jork Weissmanns photography.
