Esthaem’s Photographs Explore Sexuality, Intimacy And Identity
- Charmaine Li
Based in Linz, Austria, Esthaem is a fine art photographer delving into the themes of identity, intimacy and sexuality. His images feature mostly nude subjects surrounded in serene natural settings or positioned poetically in dimly lit rooms. Additionally, the ways in which light and shadows fall on the human body seem to be an important aspect of his photographs.
In an artist statement, he says: “With my photography I try to get a glimpse of who I am – as a human being as well as an artist. I purposely want my images to feel anonymous in a way, in order to help the viewer identify with them and maybe even find out a little bit about themselves.”
