MARIANO VON PLOCKI | PHOTO & VIDEO

Biography

ABOUT ME

I was born in 1969 in Cordoba, Argentina, and I studied primary school in a local school in Villa Carlos Paz, and then moved to Cordoba to pursue my secondary studies at a technical school in the same city.

When I was 17 years old I started to make incursions into analog photography experimenting with lights and shadows and photographing people I knew in my environment.

Later I started to play a little with the camera but I did not take the initiative to continue with photography as something for the future.

In the year 1990 I started to study advertising graphic design and publicity in an academy called Mariano Moreno in the city of Cordoba, which at the same time opened doors for me and the possibility of working in the area of publicity and design in the city of Villa Carlos Paz and in the city of Cordoba.

It was there that I began to make my first incursion into advertising writing.

In 1992 I decided to move to Germany and start there again with other types of initiatives. Unfortunately, at that time I did not have many possibilities to work in the area of graphics and advertising because the ways of working and materials between Argentina and Germany were quite different.

For several years I experimented as a hobby with the use of various types of non-analog cameras and did some developing in home-made laboratories using chemicals and infrared light.

In 2001, due to family reasons, I returned to Argentina and started to study graphic design for Internet websites at the Academy in Santo Domingo, located in the same city, and I started to use HTML and CSS design templates, achieving several sites for local clients in the city of Córdoba.

Over the years I implemented my knowledge of advertising graphic design in the area of posters and graphics for windows and businesses.

In 2011, due to a financial crisis I returned to the Republic of Germany and resumed my experiences with photography. In the same year I started to study at the Deutsche Pop Akademie, the career of cameraman and video editor. Over the years I gained more experience in photography and video and am currently developing work for various clients in Munich, and holding local photo and video exhibitions.

My vision is focused on experience photography and documentary photography mostly in monochrome is where I find my strength and my best personal expression that's why I made exhibitions on these topics.

My last two exhibitions were related to cultural situations of different regions such as: Sicily and secondly I made a documentation in the Republic of Ecuador.

I have planned for 2020 or beginning of 2021 a global exhibition or video photo exhibition and eventually other media that covers the theme of climate change and consumption ways in European culture.

My goal is to use photography to express my vision about the situations that happen worldwide and in this way raise awareness before the viewer.
