World-renowned photographer Klaus Kampert, born in 1953, based in Duesseldorf, Germany, specializes in imaging the human body to reveal beauty, grace, achievement and perfection. Even though most of his images are nude, they are not classic nudes or erotic photographs. Instead he places a personal focus on the contorted, toned human form in an ongoing dialogue with modern art and dance. Kampert’s stated goal when capturing the human body is to portray the body and mind as one in idealized, or perhaps otherworldly(?), spaces.
Throughout his career, Kampert has won many awards and his photographs have been printed in multiple international publications. Some of these awards include a gold and silver medal from the Prix de la Photographie in Paris in 2011 and 2013, respectively, and two gold medals from Graphis’ Photography Annuals 2010 and 2012.
Graphis is always thrilled to see Kampert’s submissions to our Photography Annual competitions. His work inspires. His “Water Creatures”, submitted to our current 2014 competition, is just another example of that excellence.
The competition features the most compelling and influential photography of the year. Prizes consist of platinum, gold and silver awards, with winning entries published in the Photography Annual 2014.
