Erli Grünzweil

Erli Grünzweil (b. 1992) is based in Vienna. His work lies at the intersection of observational and staged photography. He is questioning the medium itself through bringing it to its boundaries—the boundaries of lens-based and computer-generated pictures, static and moving images, fact and fiction, fine art and applied photography. The outcome are hybrids which seemingly show ordinary situations or random things, but through aesthetics, types of image production and context it goes deeper and addresses social, political and personal matters. Grünzweil works for magazines like Zeit Magazin, Sueddeutsche Zeitung Magazin, FAZ Quarterly, Zeit Campus or Das Magazin.
