André Leischner

to the home page

André Leischner, born in Zwickau in the late 1970s, is a qualified architect who has turned his passion for photography from a sideline to his main profession. Since his entry into semi-professional photography in 2003, André has focused mainly on portraits, nudes and people photography.

He has participated in numerous non-commercial photography projects, including collaborations with the Mondstaubtheater in Zwickau and various models from the national and international independent photography scene. Since 2014, he has been presenting his work in exhibitions throughout Germany, focusing primarily on portraits and nudes.

After 14 years as an architect and many years as a part-time photographer, André finally took the plunge and has been working as a full-time theater photographer at Theater Plauen-Zwickau and as a freelance photographer since 2018.

André longs for the offbeat, the subtle and the authentic without superfluous embellishment. This is often combined with the intention of provocation. His photography is an impressive rebellion against the widespread tendency towards perfection. Far from superficial norms, he deliberately celebrates the imperfect in his images and emphasizes the authentic. André's work is a profound reflection on society and challenges us to recognize reality.

In a world characterized by ideal images and norms, his art raises a critical voice and encourages an intensive examination of one's own self-image. Sometimes the motifs are deliberately arranged, sometimes they are authentic. But the truth is usually somewhere in between.

10Photos says: Provocative and different, but never insulting or offensive. André's photographs are not only thought-provoking, they also encourage self-reflection. The imperfect portrayed in perfection is an important element, an important statement in his work. We are impressed by the special and enormously creative style in each of his images. Photography and art, but also abstraction and emotion merge into a fascinating whole. This is photographic art on the highest level!

Necessary note on the subject of "buttocks and breasts" on the Internet: Dear young visitor. If you are not yet 16 years old, unfortunately you are not allowed to view these artistic and sensual photos. Please leave this site now. Alternatively you can go to a public swimming pool, there you will surely find enough women with naked torso. Or look at the lightly clothed girls on the billboards in the city. That is also allowed. Not here! Please close your eyes immediately and scream for help ...
