Art series „Essenz“ - Tim Neiser

To the point. In his art series “Essence” the director and cameraman Tim Neiser combines whole films, but also well-known places in one picture. Using his own technique of photography and editing, he combines sometimes hundreds of still images to create unique, surreal works of art.

Surreal Works

He also used his international activities as a director for this project. New York, Los Angeles, Istanbul, Rome, London. Therefore he used his creative freedom to depict the places in a very special way. The works allow for strong associations: those familiar with the place recognize the motifs. The richness of detail is impressive. Different distances to the picture create new effects.

Snapshots of Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles, the Istiklal Caddesi in Istanbul, the Via Condotti in Rome describe some of these recorded places.
