Artist Plays With Clouds In His Imaginative Photos
German visual artist Markus Einspannier has a peculiar passion for clouds, which he whimsically expresses in his fun photos. After taking pictures of real clouds with his Polaroid, he adds his own interpretations afterwards, or simply jumps straight into the frame while photographing.
“My parents kept asking me why I always gaze up into the sky and what do I see there,” recalls Einspannier, whose developing passion for clouds was encouraged by his parents’ gift on his 13th birthday – a Polaroid camera. “I started holding up different items towards the sky. Or I would jump in the air until the photograph created the illusion of me standing on the cloud.”
