The photographic works of Johannes Weinsheimer (born in 1968, in Berlin) express his visual perception of the environment. By reducing complexity to abstract shapes and colors, the artist creates emotional and meditative moments. The reality blurs, objects lose their meaning and a picture of soft abstract forms with clear and intense colors emerges. The skilful transition from figurativeness to abstraction fascinates the viewer and attracts to look deeper in the sensitive visual world of Johannes Weinsheimer.

The works are created on his numerous journeys through Germany, Italy and the USA. The motifs are usually a part of the dynamic environment of a big city, characterized by its architecture, culture and its people. In his motifs, the artist cosciously seeks tension between colors and forms and dissolves them in harmony and beauty.

A method for producing images by the action of light, which became widely known in 1839. Photography quickly became the basis for the expanding image industry that pushed the manually produced pictures, paintings and drawings into the background.

The avant-garde painting adopted photographic form elements, to ensure its painting validity. In the 1920s, many avant-garde painters turned to photography. With his photographs and photomontages, the American painter Man Ray developed new means of expression in modern art, the so-called "rayography".

The Pop Art of the 1960s varied and alienated the public photo with the help of technical means. The American pop artist Andy Warhol (1928 - 1987), with his images and image series created in this way, is the most well-known master of this art form.
