Since her youth, Antje Schulz has been enthusiastic about photography. She was already producing abstract pictures with an analogue single-lens reflex camera in 1992, often making double exposures and collages in the bathroom of her first one-bedroom apartment in Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin. Since 2015, she has been developing her own drawing technique of abstract photography. The artist seeks dialogue with the viewer, whose imagination is animated by expressive art photographs. She paints with the camera, inspired by great masters such as Claude Monet, Paul Cézanne, and the romanticist Caspar David Friedrich. Their works are drawn into the spell. Her most well-known works are Impressionist and lonely forest landscapes, which have been created in and around Berlin. But the photographer is also continually exploring the insatiable heartbeat of her hometown itself, and photographs it abstractly from the persepective of a woman looking closely and experiencing the ambiguous history of Berlin. She also dedicates herself to music and has been composing experimental sound oases for 30 years, which, like her photographs, are works of unadapted inspiration.
