Carsten Witte, born in 1964, is the venerable priest of beauty. He had attended the Bielefeld school of photography, worked as assistant for renowned photographers and started his career as a freelancer with his own studio in 1989, he could finally dedicate himself exclusively to his perfect esthetics at taking shots of beautiful woman’s bodies, their eroticism and chasteness and the sensual play of shadow and light, whereas he has never betrayed the deference to the beautiful creature. The interpretation of his works is basically left to the beholder but as a matter of fact he is subtly directing the view through his mise-en-scène.
“It’s always faces that fascinate me and this mysterious purity of really beautiful people“, he said.
“How can a woman be expected to be happy with a man who insists on treating her as if she were a perfectly normal human being.” Oscar Wilde
