PORTRAIT OF TIMOTHY
BY JOSEPH WOLFGANG OHLERT
While on vacation in California this past summer to photograph drag queens for a book he’s currently working on, Berlin-based artist Joseph Wolfgang Ohlert was looking for a ride from Los Angeles to San Francisco. Through social networks, Joseph found someone who could take him along with him.
His name was Timothy. They didn’t know each other. But this changed quickly.
In the middle of the road trip, the two stopped at this hot spring wellness resort for one night, enjoying the landscape a little bit longer together and capturing these images.
German artist Joseph Wolfgang Ohlert was born in 1991 in Prien am Chiemsee (Bavaria). After graduating from Rudolf Steiner School in Schwäbisch Hall, he did various internships working in the set design department of movie productions and theaters, as well as assistant directing. Simultaneously, his devotion to art and photography grew rapidly, and he began producing more and more artistic works. Since 2012, he attends the Ostkreuz School of Photography in Berlin. In his work, Ohlert attempts to dissect the subjects of youth, beauty and arty itself. Joseph W. Ohlert is convinced that every person has a zero point: A state were everyone is the same, stripped down of clothing and attitude.
