The work of Hubertus Hamm is characterized by its intense exploration of the medium of portrait photography, culminating in the installation Portrait IV. As a consistent expansion of the principle of “photography”, which the artist calls “Dimensioning Photography”, Hubertus Hamm’s works engage the viewer in a dialogue, encouraging self-reflection and self-questioning.

Trained as a photographer, Hubertus Hamm departs from the beaten track of classic photography, often even forgoing the very medium in which he was schooled. However, his artistic approach moves away from classic photography, reflecting on modalities of the image by exploring and transcending the limits of the medium in terms of three-dimensionality and materiality.
