THE IMAGE AS IMAGINATION
Freelance photographer and graphic designer Karel Waignein works for the corporate world and as an independent artist. He shapes the human story, often using light colour touches and creating striking compositions.  The narrative character of his photographic oeuvre appeals to everyone’s imagination. At the same time, the distance the medium offers enables him to question the world in his very own way. Waignein does not shy away from a sharp tone - often devoid of humour. His focus enables him to offer strong visual concepts of corporate life in an original and well-considered manner.
