Born 1948, lives and works in Freiburg i.Br., Germany
Edwin Gantert is a photographer and writer, who had several solo shows in Germany. His interest in Marseille made him an attentive observer of the city for a long time, the pictures that resulted from this engagement were published in “Izzo’s Marseille” as illustrations for Izzo’s stories. In his “Schwarz-Wald-Weiß” project he observes his often romanticized home and manifests a black and white abstract idea of this area in southern Germany. In connection with his own writing and additional Japanese haikus his works have a poetic depth.
