Photographs of the places of impressionism

Born in 1965 in Austria, Christoph Grill lives and works in Graz. He became a freelance photographer after completing his studies in biology and anthropology in 2000. His work includes offbeat, singular reports in a plastic vein, made in panoramic shots of bombed buildings in Kazakhstan, The Drying of the Aral Sea, Soldiers and Victims, Guardians of the Ruins of War... This work was the subject of a book: Shorts Stalks at Distant Schores, Hatje Kantz editions (2012). During the fall of 2012, Christoph Grill made a photographic series on the beaches of Haute-Normandie and Finistère, which approaches the landscape by associating its space and its experience. He has been commissioned by the City of Deauville to return in the spring of 2013 to the sites and beaches where Boudin, Courbet and Monet set down their easels yesterday. This double look: paintings of yesterday and photographs of today has created an exhibition combining 22 reproductions of paintings with contemporary photographs in the form of diptychs.

Christoph Grill works with film and in a silver photographic mode.
