German artist Hans-Christian Schink’s photography is primarily focused on sparse landscapes and highways. His stoic images feature structures and land that are symbolic of the solidarity found in large urban environments. Often focusing on his native land, the artist has photographed the autobahn, train systems and constant construction in the former East Germany. New works depict a similar landscape but now contain mysterious floating bars that hover low in the sky. Schink studied photography at the University for Graphics and Book Art in Leipzig. The artist has exhibited in Los Angeles with the ACE Gallery and the Paul Kopeikin Gallery. He has also exhibited with several international galleries, including Martin-Gropius-Bau, the Dany Keller Galerie in Germany and Grand Prix Europeen de la Ville de Vevey in Switzerland.
