My name is Jane Weinmann and I am a photographer based in Rheinfelden Switzerland.
My photographic journey started with the gift of a box brownie camera from my Grandfather when I was about 10 years old. Through watching and learning, I developed a long-lasting love of black and white imagery that remains today.
After a long break, I rediscovered my passion for the camera and my recent exploration of the medium has evolved in two very different directions.
My minimalist images convey an ongoing interest in black and white and a deep interest in shape, pattern and form. Sometimes starkly empty, the images demonstrate a clear less is more approach in which a single snow covered tree can take centre stage. My more content filled images rely on the strong repetition that patterns offer and can be mesmerizing in their confusion at first glance.
In complete contrast, another of my recent series “30 mins on the S1” is a wild exploration of the glory of colour and an experimentation with the possibilities of digital art.
Most recently, I have been fascinated by the unusual things that exist in the woods and along mountain paths that we might normally miss but most definitely might once have been the stuff of legends (Sagenumwoben).
If you are interested in purchasing prints of any of the images please contact me.
