Kampert / Statement

My work is mainly concerned with the human body.

Still, I do not consider my images to be classic nudes or erotic

photography, although these genres may have an impact on my work.
I am not interested in showing beauty as an outward phenomenon.

Rather I would like to present the human being as a whole:

Body and mind united.
By picturing nakedness in an image, it is to reveal mind and emotion,

not only showing the body as such.

Among my models especially the ballet dancers are those who succeed in

expressing this wholeness in a particular manner.

Their bodies bespeak the constant pursuit of beauty, grace, achievement

and perfection.

It is my intention and my passion to display this to the viewer.
The series "You Better Not Play with the Earth", my second submission,(please mind the order of the images) was created right after Fukushima. It should be a contribution to further discuss energy sources, supply and consumption. Fukushima shows that answers to the global energy policy are not anymore just a PUBLIC matter but need to be discussed and understood by every person individually and thus are a PRIVATE matter. The future of energy policy needs an ear for an eye, for the obvious.
