about Roger Wagner

1962 - Luxemburg lives and works in Luxemburg

Roger Wagner is a large format photographer since the 1990s. Known for his analogue large-scale prints,sharpness and readability of all details enable the viewer to immerse the surroundings and to contemplate single objects easily. The richly depicted nature considers always the human interventions. His recent, smaller works are a homage to the endangered species of the large-scale photography.
