Andreas Hürlimann is a Swiss photographer and worldwide traveler.
For more than 40 years he has discovered many interesting motifs of rock formations, sand, water and ice in many different places on all seven continents. He is the author of several thousands of selected photographs. Most of his motifs are rocks photographed in a very particular way, significantly augmented rock textures, their “outer layer” rich in colors and value.
From among unusual shapes and profusion of pigment colors, he picks the ones which are affected only by the light - bringing their art forms to the fore. Hence, the photographs of Andreas Hürlimann depict true reality captured by the camera lens of an artist who is highly sensitive to beauty. This ability to perceive a remarkable moment, sometimes a very short one, is defined as an impressionistic experience of an artist who translates for us the realistic language of nature into artistic, abstract pictures, sometimes subtly retouched by a chiaroscuro of a deep perspective. These pictures, although captured through the eye of a camera, become paintings that are able to be interpreted in the language of art.
The works of Andreas Hürlimann were presented numerous times in galleries in Switzerland, Germany, Austria and Poland. They are held in private collections and are continuously exhibited by the Atelier TonArt Gallery in Hombrechtikon near Zurich Switzerland and the Ney Gallery&Prints, Warsaw Poland .
I have been taking pictures since I was 18. Since the very beginning, I have been mainly interested in the graphical effect of the pictures. During many journeys all over the world, I find my subjects. Light, forms and color, magnificent structures of nature. Those are the ingredients to my pictures. It does not matter where the picture has been taken or what it really is. It is essential what you perceive in these pictures. Take your time, let my pictures affect yourself and simply enjoy the photographs in the galleries.
