STEFAN ARAND, ARTIST AND PHOTOGRAPHER, BORN IN DUESSELDORF, GERMANY IN 1972, ELABORATES FINE ART PHOTOS WITH A SINGULAR ATTENTION TO DETAIL. FOR ARAND HIS WORK ALWAYS HAS TO DO WITH DISCOVERING STRIKING AND EMOTIONAL MOTIFS. HE OFTEN WORKS FOR MONTH ON ONE PICTURE UNTIL ITS FINAL COMPLETITION. IN THE PRINTED PICTURE, THE COMBINATION OF LARGE FORMAT AND MAXIMUM RESOLUTION REACHES NEW DIMENSIONS. THE PICTURE HAS AN IMPACT ON THE VIEWER NOT ONLY WHEN LOOKING AT IT FROM A CERTAIN DISTANCE. IF ONE LOOKS AT IT CLOSELY, NEW PERSPECTIVES UNFOLD, WITHOUT ANY LOSS OF QUALITY TO THE PICTURE. THIS HAS THE ASTOUNDING EFFECT OF THE VIEWER FEELING ALMOST LIKE DRAWN INTO THE PICTURE. HIS PHOTOGRAPHIC ARTWORK CAN BE SEEN IN NUMEROUS PUBLICATIONS AND EXHEBITIONS. APART FROM THAT HE HAS BEEN CREATING COVER PICTURES FOR NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL MAGAZINES ON A CONTINOUS BASIS FOR OVER 18 YEARS. ---
