Photographer and photo-journalist, born 1970 in Düsseldorf.
In 1983 in México he bought his first 2nd hand Canon AE-1 and has been creating analogue and later digital photography ever since. Rockfish’s themes range from free interpretations of urban stories to black & white landscapes and nudes as well as his essential encounters with nature and inhabitants of authentic, remote places.
Having lived and worked in Argentina, Mexico, Germany, Hong Kong, Singapore and Spain, his favourite place is Barcelona.
His photography invites the viewer to look beneath the surface of the actual picture. “A photograph often is just a fraction of a second, but it can be an eternity”, he says.
Axel has been selected as finalist for the Barcelona International Photography Award 2015 and he is exhibited at galleries internationally as well as at Art fairs, such as Art Karlsruhe, Art Fair Cologne, AAF Hamburg, London, Amsterdam, Brussels and more. Fine Art limited editions of his works, large and small, can be ordered and shipped internationally.
