Christa Frieda Vogel
Christa Frieda Vogel is a German photographer who lives and works in Berlin, Germany. She has published several photo books and presented her work in national and international exhibitions.
Vogel's photography is mostly documentary: In the series (and book) Georgien (Georgia) she photographed people as if they were their own monuments. Her pictorial strategy rests, both in color and black and white images, on the long shot and the central figure.
For her exhibition and book project Artistanbul Vogel portrayed 34 fine artists, male and female, of three generations in Istanbul and accompanied them to their favourite places. During the two years of work on this series she established the gallery project Galata House of Art in Beyo?lu which hosts both artists from Berlin and Istanbul. It was there where Vogel presented in 2011 her Artistanbul-series flanked by works of the portrayed, among them Ara Güler, Burhan Do?ançay, Mahmut Celayir, Erdo?an Zumruto?lu and Hande Varsat.
Those of Vogel's works which are not primarily documentary, like the polaroids of "Erotica", approach the subjects also by means of close-up and blur. Similar strategies are employed within the "Blaues Wunder" series (Blue Miracle) as a study of the (under-)water world in general whilst the b/w series Jellyfish focuses in particular on the bizarre bodies of the gelatinous creatures.
