Hieronymus Grabstein – Monumentum
Lens Magazine|October 2021
Our brain is organized so that it analyses and memorizes visual information faster than any text. A spectator is always curious to see what is left outside the camera’s view. There is hardly a better way to tell stories of people’s lives other than via visual imagery. Handicraft– from the beginning and up to the end of each operation. It is not an automated process but significant experience, expertise, and a bit of spontaneity and freedom of artistic creativity.

The photographs turned out to be full of life and filled with the magic of the creative process.

Working on various projects ranging from fine art to portrait photography. As a visionary, guided by his bright mind and intuition, Hieronymus sees his own art as a reality broadcast of sorts. Consequently, he prefers not to direct viewers into any specific feeling with his work, letting the dreamy and surreal images speak for themselves.
