Nick Treadwell, eccentric gallery owner
I love theatre and my gallery is very theatrical. Staged photography is as close to theatre as art can be, with Lukas the director, creating the narrative of his story. After years of collaborating with Lukas on photo shoots, I know what to expect, but there are always unexpected occurrences, since there needs to be some intuitive decision-making in the course of staging a photograph when people are involved. My first reaction on viewing one of the staged photographs in which I am involved, is invariably a Hearty Laugh! To be a participant in a staged photograph, is to be close to the creative process of the artist. Knowing so much about them, I like to show these pictures in my gallery.
LUKAS MAXIMILIAN HÜLLER
About the Photographer
Lukas Maximilian Hüller is an Austrian photographer – he stages photographs as tableaux and creates conceptual designs for educational art projects.
Lukas was born in Vienna where he graduated High School. In the early 1990s he left Austria to study photography at the “Acadamy of Visual Arts de la CAMBRE” in Brussels and he received his Masters of Fine Arts Photography in 1995.
He stayed in Belgium for eleven years until 2001 and this period of his artistic research lead towards staged storytelling photography utilizing the analog panorama to create “frozen” short-film sequences without any digital support.
The peak of this examination disembogued to translate “the seven deadly sins” historic painting by Hieronymus Bosch into panoramic storyboards (still analog) – the project took several years to realize (2002 to 2007) and was a big success within the international art-world (www.7deadlysins.at).
Lukas’ projects are based on real-life-people co-operations relying on the power of visuals – if this were fascinating panorama portraits of famous Cuban musicians (BUENA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB), crazy visual story-telling’s with the British bands such as THE TIGER LILLIES, NIGEL BURCH & THE FLEA PIT ORCHESTRA or British eccentric gallerist NICK TREADWELL.
At the same time Lukas started developing large and complex stagings with youth and children around the world reflecting the importance of creative and cultural education as an important voice to express feelings and visions of future generations. He is initiator of the initiative “Child of Play” (www.childofplay.com) – a group of dedicated international artists. Their joint concepts and projects are used for educational programmes and are exhibited and presented internationally as being awarded on an international level.
Influences of historic painters such as Pieter Bruegel and Hieronymus Bosch, or filmmaker Peter Greenaway, photographer Gregory Crewdson, actor / director Paulus Manker and the british musician Martyn Jaques (The Tiger Lillies) stay relevant for Lukas staged photographic work.
Lukas co-initiated support projects for young Austrian photography at the University of Applied Arts Vienna and Academy of Fine Arts Vienna from 2010 to 2014 and lead photographic workshops as guest lecture at the University for Art and Design Linz, Austria in 2014.
Lukas work is presented and exposed on an international level since 1995
