Alex Harbich (1994*) born in the south of Germany, lives and works as a photographer in Hamburg. In his work the artist deals with the values, actions, and developments which humans inherently form within themselves. This intricate web of factors stands as the core in his long-term projects. These include for instance topics about identity, fear, and alienation. Harbich’s work questions what it means to be human, that our existence should be viewed as a phenomenon and how society can be seen as a deeply layered and complex collective.
After starting to approach the medium autodidactically, he graduated in 2021 at the University of Europe for Applied Sciences with a Bachelor of Arts in photography. His work has been exhibited at the Triennal of Photography, at the Altonaer Museum and within the luxury hotel Grand Hyatt. In addition, he was part of the program at the Berlin based Galerie Minimal and was selected for two covers of the German governments yearly report on economy and energy. Besides his artistic endeavours he also works as a professional photographer in the fields of architecture and portraiture. If he is not photographing parking complexes at day or woods at night, he conceptualizes large scale instillations and projects in his studio.
