Robert Allmann is an artist focused on the attempt to bridge photography and painting, determined to create artwork that depicts curiosity and beauty in painstaking detail, without compromising the reality of the everyday. Allmann’s photographs are unaltered by digital means yet show mastery of light and situation.
Born in the beautiful blackforest town of Freiburg he lived in many places, including Hamburg, Mumbai and Berlin. In the past years he absorbed life in London, Munich and Singapore. The many cultures mixed in those cities and its architectures he finds truly inspiring.
In his latest work Robert strives to mix the accuracy of photography with the elegance of a brush stroke. This is not achieved by digitally manipulating the photographs but by using the right settings. The colours are taken from the surrounding lights.
