VONTHALHEIM is an art director and photographer based in Berlin and Vienna.
Like the virtue patience, passion comes from the Latin root “pati”. VONTHALHEIM is following her passion with a focused intensity paying attention to every detail in her process and, in doing so, creating colorful unique imaginary. VONTHALHEIM takes inspiration from both the rawness of nature and from the simple, often quirky beauty found in day-to-day moments. In her own words: “Inspiration is everywhere, we just have to keep our eyes and minds open to what surrounds us in everyday life.”
As Otto Dix said, “All art is exorcism. I paint dreams and visions too; the dreams and visions of my time. Painting is the effort to produce order; order in yourself. There is much chaos in me, much chaos in our time.”
By using both analog and digital photography, VONTHALHEIM strengthens the heartbeat of her vision with the idea that fashion is a being- a magical medium that is captured, transformed, and preserved by film. She also uses polaroid and disposable cameras to shoot fashion campaigns and also to document stylish people around her as well as her surroundings in both, city and nature. The main focus is still on finding beauty in everything. In the grotesque of nowadays fast city life as well as in the silence of nature. Her passion, craftsmanship, and unique style makes VONTHALHEIM a truly provocative and timeless artist.
