I heart autodidacts. Andreas Bitesnich is one. I kind of admire people, who just follow their very own path. In art, I find that working autodidact means developing and finding these very own paths. Without people telling you what to do and how to do it. Not that technical education does not matter, but the feeling must come first, I say. He found a great path for himself, and is now one of the most wanted nude and portrait photographer in the world.
I finally made it to his current exhibition More Nudes at the Galerie Westlicht yesterday. Today’s the very last day of the (already extended) exhibition. Go there, be fascinated. Now!
Personal Note: I either want his book Travel for birthday, or my own book Travel. That might be to expensive for you though.
