/ 2016 / Fine Art / Nudes


With the series `Porcelain´I wanted to create new sculptural forms of the human body in a
simple, clear and as the title may indcate,elegant form.

Klaus Kampert,
born in 1953 lives and works as a freelancer in Duesseldorf, Germany.
As a photographer he is self-taught.
After working for many well-known photographers in the advertising field,
he established his own business in 1981 in Duesseldorf.
His main interest is people-photography focussing on beauty, portrait, nudes
and dance.
He works for leading advertising agencies and companies but also indulges
in artistic photography.
Many of his images, especially nudes and ballet-dancers have been printed
in international publications and are very asked for among collectors.
