Gregor Schoepf


Nature Photographer Gregor Schöpf shoots Nature through the lens of Japanese aesthetic sensibility Wabi-Sabi (侘寂).

Motifs from the 侘寂 Wabi-Sabi Nature Photography Portfolio can be purchased as high-quality photographic prints on matte premium photo paper framed in solid Black Oak wood.

Wabi-Sabi (侘寂) is a Japanese aesthetic that characterizes Impermanence as beautiful.

侘 Wabi is Beauty in Simplicity. 寂 Sabi is Beauty in Ephemerality and Decay.

By aestheticizing Impermanence, Gregor's Photography is a visual Metaphor for finding peace with Death and Decay.

To address complex problems human civilization will be confronted with in the 21st century, we need to grow our cultural sensitivity towards the subject of death.

His work is characterized by five Applied Principles: Natural Seasons
(Kisetsu 季節), Asymmetry and Irregularity (Fukinsei 不均整), Simplicity (Kanso 簡素), Texture (‎Kime 肌理) and Empty Space (Ma 間).
