Selection - since 1981
Born in 1946 in Switzerland, Christian Vogt lives and works in Basel. Working as a photographer since the late 60’s, he studied at the Basel Design School and became the assistant of the American photographer Will McBride in Munich. He then opened his studio in Basel, working on commercial projects while pursuing his artistic researches with a great inventiveness. His photographs embrace the notion of space, the relationship between bodies, the passing of time or the link between text and image. With an enthusiasm for the world that he conveys from the shooting to the print, Vogt builds his work in color or black and white, carefully thinking about the size and the printing technique of each image.
