In his photographic works, Eric Pawlitzky combines seemingly unspectacular subjects with social issues. He has something to say, it is never about aesthetics alone. Dealing with a theme is preceded by extensive research, which in turn often leads to texts that interact with the photographs. His seeing is influenced by landscapes and portraits of the Baroque and early Romantic periods. He combines his works with sounds, paintings and drawings at the edge of classical photography.
Pawlitzky got an education as violinist in his youth, made a PhD in law philosophy, had private lessons at many artists and took three years seminars at the Ostkreuzschule für Photografie, Berlin.
