A very warm welcome to my – Bettina Loppe’s – foto_art_work presentation page!

I am a Potsdam and Paris based artistic photographer and the woman behind the camera and foto_art_work. 

I got my first camera when I was a child – I can’t remember the model – but it was heavy and you had to wind the film by hand after each shot. This is not a reference to my age but a reminiscence to different technologies that accompanied me during my growing up as an artist.

An old, but still good friend is my Canon EOS 30 that I got while living in Paris. I still have, love and use it until today. In Paris I also started to do apprenticeships in analogue artistic black and white photography.

During my first Parisian years I spent hours wandering the streets of Paris, in the formative  foodsteps of the great French photographers – Robert Doisneau, Willy Ronis, Edouard Boubat, Henri Cartier Bresson.

Following these pathways, I discovered my passion to experiment with techniques, self constructed analog filters, daylight and nightlight. All my pictures are created in the moment I press the camera shutter button – and not on the computer.

All my work can be purchased in limited editions. If you are interested in my work, I would be happy to open my atelier for you and provide any additional information. Please feel invited to email or call me.
Thank you very much for your interest.
