Sebastian Artz: On a love trip with a young couple
A photographer who already managed to tame various rock stars in front of the camera and who made an outstanding contribution not only to photography but also to moving pictures, seems to have a magic touch for people and their personal expression.
Artz is such a prestigious people photographer who moved from Germany to Los Angeles and who has found his source of inspiration in the city of angels.
With his free series “Youth Couple”, he tells the story of a young couple in front of beautiful landscapes but also in funny situations that create a delighted smile on our faces.
All these pictures are very close to the people they present and despite them being staged, these pictures depict pure naturalness and they seem wonderfully candid and playful.
