For more than half a century (1960 – 2011), Gunter Sachs was not only one of the most colorful but also one of the most misinterpreted personalities in public life. During his early artistic period in the 80s Gunter Sachs draws his artistic inspiration from the tradition of surrealism and translates its aesthetic principles into the medium of photography. The personal encounter with the protagonists of Nouveau Réalisme and Surrealism in Paris forms the basis of Sachs’ famous art collection and his own photographic language.
Like the surrealists, Sachs combines dreamlike and real picture elements and creates unique contemporary interpretations through the medium of photography. By applying ironic seriality or using blue tones in photographs of women’s bodies, he creates suggestive, atmospheric pictures that let us immerse ourselves in a nighty atmosphere of dream and subconscious.
