Digital post-editing today allows repairing virtually every mistake and achieving any desired aesthetic result, but at a great cost. Where any result can be produced , seeing and sensual perception lose their value and significance, as does the technical and manual process of capturing an image. Josef Dreisörner rejects this current approach to the photographic workflow radically.
His KLIMSCH UNIKAT portrait shots yield perspectives of the human visage with downright surgical precision. In most of his still lifes, his concern as an artist is to draw the viewer's attention to socially relevant issues. Such pictorial statements are mainly realized by analogue large format cameras. Among others, Josef Dreisörner uses a Klimsch Praktika repro / process camera built in 1957 with a film format of up to 50x60 cm (20×24 INCH). Photographs are taken analogously on film or with direct exposure on black-and-white positive photo paper.
