Christian Vogt
Swiss, b. 1946
Follow

Christian Vogt belongs to a generation of Swiss photographers reacting against a style of photography that called Sachfotographie (or “non-subjective photography”), which was known to be detached and journalistic. Vogt, who began his photographic career in editorial and advertising, has a widely varied and prolific output. He produces his work in distinct and discrete series, based sometimes on the use of a certain color or subject. Nonetheless, his practice remains preoccupied with particular themes, such as a subjective experience of time and space, or the quality of surfaces or textures. He also uses a sensuous-though-stark presentation of the human body—an aesthetic shared by the work of Will McBride, who once employed Vogt as an assistant.
