Eckart Bartnik lives and works in Wiesbaden. Free artistic photography projects allow him as a natural scientist to analyze what he sees differently than only rationally and objectively, but subjectively and emotionally. As an autodidact he deepened his knowledge in workshops with renowned photographers such as Bruce Barnbaum, Wolfgang Zurborn, Markus Schaden, Thekla Ehling, Laura Hynd, Claudio Cambon, Olaf Otto Becker, Ann Mandelbaum, Andrea Diefenbach, Derek Ridgers and Göran Gnaudschun.
Since the 1980s his works have been exhibited internationally in group and solo exhibitions and published in daily newspapers (e.g. FAZ), magazines (e.g. Stern), specialist magazines (e.g. Wings) and online (Spiegel-Online, TheGuardian).
From the early abstract themes, his gaze increasingly turns to reality intertwined with the past and to man's relationship to the landscape. In his more recent works, he uses light to transform the image in such a way that the essence of what he sees becomes visible.
