ABNORMAL COLORS, TEXTURES AND ABSTRACT SUBJECTS ARE THE KEY WORDS THAT DEFINE THE WORK OF THE FRENCH PHOTOGRAPHER CONSTANTINE SCHLACHTER.
His works are the result of a totally emotional study based on feelings: this is why images are never taken for granted and they are often difficult to understand.
His study of the unconscious and the world of nature has led him to create a connection with the movement of the “Gyrovaci”, a reality that dates back to the beginning of Christianity. Born as wondering monks without a permanent residence or home, the Gyrovaci’s thinking has strong roots in the relationship between man and nature and their experiences of continuous solo journeys lead to an inner study of themselves.
The aesthetics of Schlachter fully recalls their way of thinking. Through photos of places and landscapes he manages to capture his emotions by creating a real sensorial journey in his own unconscious. Thanks to the use of cameras, microscopes and manipulations, he transforms his subjects into moods and feelings.
