Investment banker, family father and friend to Andreas Gursky. Jochen has an impressive life story to tell. It was a re-union with the latter, childhood friend and world famous photographer Andreas Gursky that caused Jochen to reinvent himself as an award winning photographer.
Having inherited his artistic skills from both his grandmother, a passionate photographer, as well as his father who worked with many of the industries top photographers, he quickly abandoned his early attempts to become a professional photographer in favour of an international career in investment banking. After stops in Frankfurt, London and New York, Jochen is back in the game and causing quite a stir. Capturing objects from different angles, he modifies his motives using the self-developed “CMPB technique” without alienating their complexity. The results are mesmerizing images that put the viewer into an unexpected color space and directly influence ones perception of the object without alienating its essence and basic features.
It didn’t take long for Jochen’s career to gain international traction with awards in important photo challenges such as the Trierenberg Circuit, Monochrome Awards, Fotoforum Magazine and Viewbug. Following exhibitions in Germany, Hong Kong and London, Jochen Cerny is the first artist to be featured in our new Emerging Artists Viewing Rooms.
This also marks the first time that Jochen is offering his works in editions of 3 (versus his usual editions of 10) making this selection of works his rarest on the market.
