What my eyes have seen

Matthias Koch’s photographs have a great strength, an intensity of monstration that cannot leave indifferent to our time and to the world, they cause uneasiness and a diffuse anguish from which one cannot escape because it is indeed reality that is at stake, stripped of all fiction.

Claude Molzino, Philosopher

Matthias Koch is an artist and photographer originally from Germany. He lived and worked in Chile, Venezuela, Mexico and France and currently established his basecamp in the South of France.

He has no special education in photography, which results in an a very free and unconventional approach. His photography is driven by his personal search for meaning and understanding of the surrounding world. Photography is for Matthias Koch a tool for philosophical investigation and research of truth as well as a vehicle for artistic expression. The interaction between Humans, Space and Time and the underlying concept of Impermanence is one of his favorite subjects.

His work has been published print and online magazines. All images displayed on the website are available as fine art prints. Images are printed on demand and are inspected, signed, dated and numbered by the author. Please contact Matthias for sizes and pricing.
