About

 

My name is Ronald Kreimel and I  am a photographer mostly specializing in architecture.

But not exclusively. There is just too much interesting stuff to be photographed out there. Cars come to mind. But they usually involve lots of planning. As does architecture, sometimes.

But on some of my most enjoyable assignments it usually happened that I had a time window of as little as 5 minutes to get a portrait done, or to document an entire manufacturing process in about an hour. If there is interesting places surrouding interesting people, then there is always something to find.

It always was that way. Plus, the outcome might often be even a bit more interesting than the artful, meticulously planned and, yes, sometimes souless arrangement of colors and shapes - causing an information overload that is as stressful as it is beautiful at best.

Without realizing why at first, I was always drawn to Japanese visuals, which are often quite intuitive, even in commercial photography. Walk around the street there or even in a train station and marvel at the advertisement-imagery used to sell places and objects. Pictures made by humans for humans. A travel destination poster showing almost nothing but fog? Yes, why not. It has a feel, a sound, an athmosphere. The object or place is a character.

Remember the movie Blade Runner? We all shoud :) But mainly for its marvellous soundtrack which was an intuitive reaction by the composer to the carefully constructed visuals. The famous CS80 Synthesizer used primarily in the score, was, figuratively speaking, the perfect lens through which to experience the film. Whenever possible, I try to react with my camera as if the photography was the intuitive result of any given surrounding I happen to be at the time. A visual soundtrack maybe...

2015, IPA International Photography Awards, Category "Deeper Perspective" - Honorable Mention

I value this honorable mention especially since the the photographs were judged jointly with an accompanying text. To the best of my knowledge, this was the single non-political or socially relevant entry being awarded with a recognition.

The series featured assigned photography displaying CRAB Studios new building at the Vienna University. The building previously won the first prize at the WAF for most innovative exterior color scheme, featuring mainly primary colors. 

Hence the may essay/entry was titled "Winning (With) The Primaries"
