Jörg Finger started photography while still in high school. He studied psychology and computer science at the university of Freiburg, Germany.
While working in the computer graphics domain he took photography courses at the Basel School of Design (Schule für Gestaltung Basel), Switzerland. Since 1998 he has regularly participated in exhibitions. In 2008 he started working as a freelance photographer in Freiburg. In 2010 he became a member of the Federal Association of Artists of the Fine Arts (BBK, Berufsverband der bildenden Künstlerinnen und Künstler).
FINE ART NUDE
The series Jörg Finger presents consists of classic fine art nude photographs in black and white. The central topic of his work is the effect of light on the human body. His aim is to reduce complexity and to focus on aesthetics. He does this by his choice of backgrounds and props, by using only one light source and by directing poses, where the model remains anonymous. All this results in a sculptural impression.
Jörg Fingers workflow is completely digital: from image capture to fine art inkjet print. Yet it is still inspired by his earlier black and white work on film with development in the darkroom.
