Fabian Oefner is more than a photographer, he is a curious and ambitious investigator, who carefully studies natural phenomena and shows them in a completely different and unseen way. The aim of the artist is to study the response to the surroundings of two different fields -art and science- in order to provide a rational and emotional approach with his photographs. Oefner invites the viewer, as he says, to stop for a moment and appreciate the magic that constantly surrounds us.

The study of this magnificent photographer goes after  the behaviour of different materials when submitted to natural forces. The photographs of Fabian Oefner involve a precise previous process before shooting the exact moment with the right light. Therefore, we could say Fabian Oefner is more an artist. Fabian Oefner goes beyond the mere aesthetics of art and reveals a magical universe combining art and science. Such combination brings to life spectacular effects, astonishing colours and fascinating works of art that are pure communication.
