When we concentrate the most, we find ourselves thinking nothing at all.
Drifting off with open eyes has become a daily companion of our modern society. The series "Syncope" deals with moments of sudden sensory overload in a playful, poetic and sometimes sarcastic way.
Each picture depicts people in their own world of thoughts - abstract and yet real, artistic, and yet so down to earth. Is our society still able to focus in a world full of stimuli?
Author: Seb Agnew is an award-winning photo artist based in Hamburg, Germany. Within staged images, he creates hyperrealistic sceneries which explore the human psyche and our modern society. Set design, lighting and composition play a major role in his photographic work. Seb loves cinematic and mysterious settings as well as moments of disorientation and lonesome reflection. Every person is a microcosm, and every microcosm has a story to tell.
During his studies of “Audiovisual Media” (B.Eng.) in Stuttgart, Germany, Seb specialised in photography and post production to lay the foundations of his future work. In order to pass on his skills professionally, he later studied “Vocational Education” (M.Ed., B.Sc.) at the university of Hamburg, Germany.
Today, Seb is excited to be able to work independently as a photo artist and to teach aspiring photographers at the “Vocational School for Media and Communication” in Hamburg, Germany.
