Anton Kuehnhackl, an artist from the SF Bay Area, is interested in questioning photography's "structure" in order to generate new meaning. They believe that the medium needs to progress beyond what's established, and manipulation is key to this.
Is it still enough for an image to only show one "side"? They display this by constructing and playing with the object's properties in order to restructure new characteristics. They believe that by blurring the line between connections of the manipulator and what's being manipulated, throws the meaning at its viewer, leaving it up to them to decide what an image truly is.
They received a BFA from San Francisco Art Institute (SFAI) in 2020. Their work has been published in Divide Magazine, WhitePaperBy, VSCO, and Vast Mag. They have been exhibited nationally & internationally.
