About Artist

Christian Klant

Christian Klant specialises in handmade, analogue photography. With his main technique, the wet plate collodion process, he photographs for art projects and commissioned works. With a well-rehearsed team, Klant realizes elaborate productions and creates image worlds that seem removed from time while simultaneously revealing a modern twist. Equipped with large-format cameras and a mobile darkroom, the images are developed on site immediately after exposure. This enables a quick evaluation of the results and creates space for fine-tuning. The skilful use of different lenses renders classic digital post-processing redundant. The rich detail of high-resolution scans is impressive, the resolution being many times higher than that of even the most modern digital medium-format cameras. Brands that are aiming for value, authenticity and an exciting story appreciate Klant for his master yat letting these attributes speak for themselves through his photographs. The extraordinary aesthetics and depth of his pictures are compared to the works of Paolo Roversi, Sarah Moon and Irving Pen. Christian Klant is a professional member of the German Association of Photographers (BFF), publisher of the BFF Art-Lab podcast, speaker of the German head association for photography (Deutscher Fotorat) and also member of the DGPh. He published his second book “Places of Resonance” in 2022 and has exhibited internationally.
