The world's best photographers on plsr. the international photography showcase.
olaf blecker's version of portrait photography has opened up a new way of looking at people. a significant contribution to this has been made by his portraits of prominent personalities, which have been published in recent years in both german and international magazines. these include the süddeutsche magazin [south german magazine], the new york times magazine and the frankfurter allgemeine zeitung [frankfurt general newspaper].
whether he is depicting foreign ministers or boxing champions, blecker's portraits of such people repeatedly cut across the traditional conceptions of classic celebrity photography. the same aesthetic principle can also be successfully applied in advertising work, as is shown by his long list of international agencies – a list that continues to grow. living in berlin, blecker has been working as a freelance photographer since 1995. his work includes campaigns and editorials as well as freely chosen projects.
