Hello and thank you for being here. I am G.M. Anders an analog photographer who is convinced that 175 years after it's invention analog photography is ready to become something different: Photoart. A liberation has come to the analog photographic tools by their obsolescence for commercial use & service. Now they are truly ready to be an artist's tool. It's time to reinvent analog photography as a means of free spirited expression resonating with you. ANDERSVIEW is about reconnecting to the tradition of our Analog Visual Record in new Photoart & Postdigital ways.
ANDERSVIEW Photoart Label was inspired by the Brooklyn Artist Community & is registered in NYC too. I am producing right now in & out of the EUROPEAN UNION.
The source is high quality 35mm or 4x5" BW Film. The images are made by me with my analog Leica M6 or ARCA SWISS camera & great lenses. I carefully hand process all film and handcraft the silver-gelatin fiber prints in my own analog darkroom.
The magic of an analog B&W image is something special. To bring this magic back into your life, I created different art formats. The three formats come at different price points and motifs are carefully chosen to establish coherent series.
You will find my artwork in different formats custom tailored to the context of the viewing location: Artstations & nearby galleries or the Elena AB Gallery, NYC. All images are also available as custom order on silver-gelatin fiber BW photo paper.
When you follow ANDERSVIEW you will see a new Exhibit concept popping up. We promise it will be really fun to be in the streets were it happens :-) starts April 2018.

ARTSTATIONS : See & experience a community in a different way.
Finding new authentic locations doesn't have to be wish full thinking on a trip into new urban environments. At least that happens to me when I travel. While exploring cities I have carefully chosen locations to photograph. I place Andersview Photoart Artstations at authentic locations which will hopefully enhance your travel experience too. Artstations will be installed at places like cafes, bars, restaurants, shops etc. constituting an Photoart-Walk within an neigborhood. Free ANDERSVIEW Photoart-Walk Guide Booklets to the neighborhood's Artstations will be available at every Artstation &/or online. My Artwork on display is site specific and available for purchase at an Artstation. I am also creating a special reward to those who visit all the Artstations of a Photoart-Walk for you . I feel that it isalways wonderful to have access to and stay at places & with people that give the city its own magic flavor. Starts Jan. 2018.
