Art is determined by the artist not the viewer, the image may or may not draw the viewer’s attention to see it as either positive or negative. Van gough’s work in his day was unacceptable because the viewer was unable to appreciate his vision (drug induced vision do to his medication?); this is nevertheless impacting, even for us today in a challenging way. Price verses cost is determined by the fickle buyer. Price is what we pay for an image; cost is what the artist pays to create the image.
Klaus has been published in a number of books and magazines.
Quote: From Wedding-Portrait Photography World by Jack Curtis:
"Like Klaus, I feel excitement in the search. I’ve been sitting here for some time holding in my hand his bridal portrait of the ballerina who is the bride, delicately balanced, poised on a ballerina shoe, stretching to reach her new husband’s eager lips. The freedom of the space within the picture, the sylvan setting the soft tones hint of the touch of the masters. It does stretch one’s imagination. There is something down-to-earth here – yet so refined. Klaus did not simply pose and snap. Three people came together, joined in the execution of a tiny semblance of a masterpiece."
