Here’s JT at a tiny festival I was at a few months ago - was casually shooting the band as they played. I believe he was teaching at the Art Academy in Nürnberg at the time.
I know he loves his Contax (which is film) but I’ve seen him use digital before. I suppose it’s like a painter or writer; it depends on what the artist wants to use at that moment. Maybe a brush, their fingers; a pen or a pencil or a typewriter; or in this case digital or film. It all depends on mood and probably the magazine/designer/ad campaign he’s shooting for.
I think what GLOWING-SOLE was trying to say was that his photography is just extremely well known for being shot on film entirely (among many other things, of course). Juergen has mastered film in a very unique way and he’s just one of the front runners who uses the medium. I think maybe people think he’s the only one because his photographs so obviously look like film. But you are right, a lot of photographers and major magazines prefer film because it definitely is a gem.
This is beautiful information! Thanks for sharing!
Hello. I do not know what kind of camera and lighting he used! I am going to assume he used his usual camera that he has been using recently but I don’t know for sure. Good luck!
