Matthias Koch is a self-taught artist and photographer originally from Germany. He lived and worked in Chile, Venezuela, Mexico and France and currently established his basecamp in Paris.
He graduated from Offenburg University in Germany, where his major was Management and Economy which means that he has no special education in photography, which results in an a very free and unconventional approach in the use of photography.
His photography is driven by his personal search for meaning and understanding of the surrounding world. Photography is for Matthias a tool for philosophical investigation and research of truth as well as a vehicle for artistic expression. The interaction between Humans, Space and Time and the underlying concept of Impermanence is one of his favorite subjects.
Since 2006, he extended his imagination towards fine art and conceptual projects. He recently started a cooperation with the French philosoph Claude Molzino, combinig text and photographs.
His work has been published in German and French print and online magazines.
