Based between Berlin and Amsterdam, Lukas Korschan is a photographer and filmmaker who views the world around him without agenda. After studying Sociology at Goldsmiths, University of London, he started his career as a self-taught photographer, capturing everyday scenes with a subtle sense of humor or bittersweet poetry. His work documents the fleeting moments, scenes and details which are often overlooked by others, often playing with colors, shapes and textures. Always working in realms of the ordinary and mundane, Korschan aims to distill nuances of diverse cultural identities, by pointing out non-stereotypical distinctions and fragilities within.
Guided by an inner curiosity, Korschan seeks for the magical elements in realistic situations, often focusing on fragments and small details to illustrate a larger statement of reality. His protagonists often become metaphors for a broader story and range from plants, buildings, cars, clothing and of course human beings and the traces they leave behind. Commissioned photo and video works can be found in publications such as Office Magazine, Highsnobiety, The Face, Novembre, The Travel Almanac and ZEIT Magazin or for brands like Adidas, Prada, Apple, Botter Paris, Nike or Mercedes-Benz.
