After a long and successful career as an attorney and CPA in his native Hamburg, Germany, Axel Breutigam sold his company and relocated to Vancouver, BC to pursue his lifelong passion of photography. Despite the brevity of his artistic career, Breutigam has established himself as an emerging black and white photographer with a distinct and technically sophisticated style. Intriguing perspectives, bold lighting and abstract geometric shapes are characteristic of his evocative, timeless compositions. His journey can be experienced through these unique photographic motifs. His interplay between the representational and the abstract is intriguing as well as artistic.
