About Philipp S.

From dramatic panoramic sequences to evocative toy-like images, Philipp Scholz Rittermann’s work spans the visual spectrum. He uses urban, industrial and natural landscapes as canvases to explore recurring themes in his surroundings.

An enduring theme in Rittermann’s work, beginning with his nocturnal images of urban landscapes from the early eighties, is the depiction of the passage of time. He continues this theme in his latest panoramic sequences which offer views so wide, they extend beyond what we can physically see with our own eyes. Through his images, we see beyond our senses.

"The intense chiaroscuro in Ritterman’s photographs lends them an intriguing aura of fantasy and mystery. His sweeping panoramas and intimate dioramas are imbued with a technical perfection matched by the dynamic mise-en-scene of each composition. It is easy to understand how Ritterman’s captivating imagery has garnered him critical acclaim on an international stage."
