About Roland Fischer
Photographer Roland Fischer is best known for his large-scale photographs of modern façades from buildings around the world. In his words, his subjects are “humanity and the places where it exists.” Fischer carefully frames his architectural subjects and lights them such that they appear to be planar surfaces, moving into repeating geometric abstraction in his photographic reproductions. His work has featured structures in locations as widely spread as Munich, Melbourne, and Mexico City. Fischer is also known for his monumental portraiture featuring members of the clergy, and for his illusionistic images of people submerged in pools, such that they appear as isolated busts in fields of solid color.
German, b. 1958, Saarbrücken, Germany, based in Munich, Germany
