Sven Fennema (b.1981, Germany)

Sven Fennema is a German self-taught photographer. “Reality is a matter of view”, starting with the search for the right motif Fennema transcends natural boundaries. On his photographic trips he travels across Europe where he finds unique treasures to photograph. The focus of his art are “Lost Places” – Deserted places and buildings, stripped of their functions. Each of his pictures is the result of the confrontation and connection with a place, it’s atmosphere and it’s history. From this impact Fennema shapes his concept of an image – Long before he places his camera and plans all the following steps according to his imagination. Special and unexpected compositions, full of atmosphere, the absence of artificial light and resulting natural atmospheric lighting effects characterize his work.

"I prayed for change, so I changed my mind. I prayed for guidance and learned to trust myself. I prayed for happiness and realized I am not my ego. I prayed for peace and learned to accept others unconditionally. I prayed for abundance and realized my doubt kept it out. I prayed for wealth and realized it is my health. I prayed for a miracle and realized I am the miracle. I prayed for a soul mate and realized I am the One. I prayed for love and realized it’s always knocking, but I have to allow it in.” (- Jackson Kiddard)
