Gutsche largely dispenses with electronic image processing to provide his viewer a pristine visual experience. He favours abstract-looking motifs and an expressive image composition. His works live on fine color gradations, a high level of detail and extraordinary composition. The photographs evoke their suggestive power through large-format prints with several meters of length.
In addition to landscapes and people, Gutsche is presently examining the aspects and problems of emigration, modern urbanity and the onset of modernity in untouched natural spaces.
Michael Gutsche lives and works in Thusis/Switzerland and Fulda/Germany.
