Loreen Hinz

The artist Loreen Hinz (1983), who lives in Leipzig, has established herself as a figure in international fashion and beauty photography. Her work is balanced compositions, the strong contrasts of light and color and the experimental moment in the form of motion blur of the camera during recording, post-processing is performed only occasionally.

The result is images of graceful female beauties, immersed in a mysterious and diffused environment without any real spatial definition, so that, in connection with blurred outlines, an impression of dematerialization and transcendence occurs. However, Hinz also brings the fashion and photography of people back to their genetic material, the classic portrait of the 16th-19th century.

References to old masters such as Tiziano, Caravaggio or Ingres are deliberately calculated, but the artist avoids repeating some paintings; instead the delicate colors, the poses, the attributes and the blur are received and staged only as a distant stylistic ideal, but never in an immediately repetitive way. Therefore, formal autonomy is preserved, despite the stylistic proximity to the models; Together with their perfect technical implementation, this group of works develops an exceptional image effect and achieves the quality of the museum.

The personal style of Loreen Hinz becomes tangible not only in the prodigiously staged studio sessions, but also in spontaneous nude photography: authentic shots of a young couple who plays to make love (“In Vivo”) create a distance between the actors and the spectator through the motion blur introduced and therefore withdrawing it a too voyeuristic vision, but at the same time it reflects this blurring of the reduced perception of the participants during the act of love, relieves it in an unreal sphere. Furthermore, there is a weighted composition that offers a complete contribution to the artistic value of these representations.
