Relics of the Future: Renowned photographer Toni Hafkenscheid sees the wold through Tilt Shift lenses

| |


Relics of the Future is a documentary featuring internationally renowned photographer Toni Hafkenscheid, as he explores the hidden stories behind iconic architectural images once considered “Visions of the Future” from the 1960's.

Toni Hafkenscheid is a Toronto based fine art and commercial photographer. He was born in 1959 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. In 1989, he graduated from the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and shortly thereafter moved to Toronto. During the following six years he was active in the arts community in Toronto and received several Canada Council and Ontario Arts Council awards.

In 1996 Toni moved back to Amsterdam to pursue a career as a commercial photographer and to teach photography at the Rietveld Academy. He has exhibited in solo and groupshows throughout Canada, the U.S., and Europe.

I use a camera with Tilt Shift lenses. Normally lenses like that are used to get everything in a photo in sharp focus; I deliberately use them in the ‘wrong’ way, to get only a very small bit sharp. That’s what gives you that artificial effect.  Saids Toni [via gupmagazine.com ]
