        • Short Bio:

          Lukas Felzmann was born and educated in Zürich Switzerland, and holds a MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. He has taught photography at the California College of the Arts, the San Francisco Art Institute and at Stanford University since 1993. His photographs have been shown in Europe, Egypt, Columbia and the United States.

          Lukas Felzmann’s early works were Installations with Sculptures and Photographs. More recently the work has focused on photography with a special interest in bookmaking and publishing. Lukas Felzmann’s first Monograph “Landfall” was published in 2004 by Lars Muller Publishers and was accompanied by a retrospective at the Fotostiftung Schweiz in Winterthur. Among recent work has been a photographic exploration of the Sacramento Valley as place and as metaphor by documenting a marsh altered through agriculture. In the work images and ideas about landscape, as well as natural and cultural conditions intersect. This work resulted in two large monographs both published by Lars Muller Publishers in 2009 and 2011. The two books form a conceptual pair with the first one “Waters in Between” with texts by John Berger looking down at the conditions on the ground. The second one “Swarm” with texts by Deborah Gorden and Wallace Stevens among others, looks up at the movements of flocks of birds. A fourth book “Helix” with a text by Edgar Allen Poe was published by Cavallo Point in 2009.

          Lukas Felzmann is interested in all forms of cultural expressions, particularly music, the visual arts, architecture, bookmaking and how they intersect with the natural world. His teaching embraces both digital and analogue tools and is strongly influenced by his practice as an artist. .
