Hubertus von Hohenlohe Mexican, b. 1959

Overview

"Sportsman, Globetrotter and bon vivant"

Hubertus von Hohenlohe is an atypical artist, a man of action with a peculiar path that leads him to contemplate the world from a singular perspective. His travels come alive in his panoramic photographs; Berlin, Buenos Aires, Lisbon, Mexico City, Mumbai, New York and Tokyo are some of the places where he has captured his characteristic style of street photography. His images show the world today through his eyes. Pop colours, rich textures and ornamental details.

 

Hubertus von Hohenlohe began his career in 2001 with the help of art curator Irene Dapunt, who was intrigued by the artist's peculiar style.

His work explores the idea of integrating himself into the urban scenes that surround us playing the role of the paparazzi who blends in with the object. Like a modern Narcissus in love with his reflection, the artist captures his own image reflected in every corner of the different cities he visits, so that the observer becomes the observed in a visual game marked by light and colour.

Hubertus travels the world as an ambassador for the Leica brand, merging his image with that of characters and places that symbolise contemporary pop culture. In his portraits, the excessive fascination with fame and all that it symbolises is present.
