P2P – Photo to Painting: Uwe Pietsch

Uwe Pietsch is one of my LinkedIn contacts. He is currently still working as a planning engineer, but he wants to use the opportunity that is offered to him of early retirement in March 2020, and thus start his “second life” and focus 100% on painting.
Uwe has defined as his first goal in his life “personal satisfaction with his paintings”, which he now has already achieved.
However, in anticipation of his retirement, he wanted to translate this first photo ‘Origin’ as his definition of a P2P cooperation with me. He called it P2P “Photo to Painting” and thus make an interpretation of one of my photos in his own artistic way.

Below his first painting ‘Experiences With Light’, followed by the photo that inspired him.

Origin - Experimental abstract realistic fine art photo by Jacob Berghoef


‘Origin’ is a new experimental photograph, made with a digital camera without using a lens.
It is the first result of a search for light in its purest form.
Visit the gallery Experimental photography


Something that I find very interesting is that Uwe has documented the various phases of the birth of his painting. A fascinating story of creativity !
