Gregor Laubsch is a German portrait photographer. Using classical methods, he managed to create his unique, individual style. Natural, not overdrawn poses, modest stylisations and emotions visible in every look constitute the form to be „worn“ by his models. To emphasise the uniqueness of each face, he uses delicate lighting and an extraordinary sensibility that he constantly develops as an artist.
Although I did a lot of things in my life photography has been and will always be my greatest passion. Thanks to digital photography and computer post-processing, a photographer’s creativity is almost infinite. Yet, my interference in the source material is limited to the required minimum. I use digital photography but I will also be faithful to the analogue. I believe that the most important things in portrait photography are lighting and model – his or her individuality, the preserving of the moment. I get inspired by people and their faces. All of them are different, all of us are different” – says Laubsch.
He’s one of the few contemporary photographers who praise minimalism over embellishment. His works constitute a proof that classical inspirations and the man in the simplest form are and will be the most interesting and emotional themes in photography. His photos were presented in individual and collective exhibitions, among others, in Warsaw and Wrocław, and published in magazines such as “Stern”, “Digital Camera”, “Blur Magazine” and many others.
