Felix Schoeppner is a German Photographer, born in the 90’s and raised in south Hesse. In 2010 he started studying Communication Design at University of Applied Science Darmstadt with focus on photography. He graduated in 2021 with a mixed media project about nature and human perception, which is still ongoing. During his studies he assisted numerous national and international photographers where he learned a lot of technical things as well as all the other skills of a photographer. In his early career was working in the field of documentary and architecture photography. Meanwhile the focus of his work has shifted to the still life. His images represent the result of a work process in which he combines various techniques and materials into installations. His work impresses with a high degree of stringency and perfection, both in terms of content and implementation. For him, photography is part of a comprehensive process in dealing with questions of human perception.

Growth – Space
Growth – Landscape as an object
In what way does human sensory perception take place in a high-tech world for connections outside of what is apparently possible?
Perception is first of all the recognition of an object or state in our immediate environment with the help of our 5 senses. With the help of technical devices, we can exceed the limits that are set biologically for us and expand them many times. The perception of such, invisible subjects and states therefore often first takes place in an abstract way with values that are assigned to certain parameters and can be visualized based on this. The clear way of representing values is in a graphic, drawing or a scaled model. Since size relationships play a decisive role here, in some cases you are forced to not display the relationships of objects proportionally to one another in order to be able to ensure that they are clearly recognizable. The series “Cognition” deals with this topic by using terms from the fields of physics and astronomy and presenting them in simplified models, build with daily objects and studio equipment.
Alexander von Humboldt defined landscape as the "total character of an earth region". The landscape is created in the mind of the observer and is - objectively seen - only a collection of different objects, organic as well as anorganic, natural as well as artificial. Under the title "Artificial Landscapes", places are documented and interpreted that simulate, optimise, and compress the characteristics of certain conditions found in nature. Artificially created nature is modified for its optimal use and the conditions can be kept constantly the same. This opens up the possibility of exporting regionally occurring characteristics of a landscape to distant regions in order to use them independently of the regional natural conditions. The reasons for creating a replicated landscape span topics from science and research, education, production, consumption and sport.
Memories are usually very personal recapses of earlier, sometimes long-gone days of a person. In the series "Figures" I compile pictures to personal memories from my early childhood to the present day. As a starting point for the image serve memories that I have in connection with a specific item. To move beyond the reproduction of memory or profane representations of objects, I place the objects in a new, different context. They are detached from their actual purpose as commodities and are thus seen as independent sculptures.
