About Rudiger Wasser

Rudiger Wasser is based in Byron Bay, Australia. His experience goes back to the days of film, black & white and the dark room. These days he works in digital and Lightroom .
His photographs are an observation of the world and people around us, seeing the little moments that are so surprising and unique, as well as capturing the here and now - there and then - a personal view and capture of the human experience.
Focus of the artist's photographs is on content, timing and design, without regard to specific technique or genre, although he seems to be drawn to urban and architectural motives. His photographs are not posed, artificially created or physically altered, other thanusing editing techniques to enhance colours, saturation and contrast.
