The Austrian photographer and film-maker Erwin Kneihsl (b. 1952 in Vienna) is one of the most interesting artists of the middle generation who work in the international milieu of Berlin. As a graduate of the Institute for Graphics in Vienna, Kneihsl is familiar with the traditional craft of reproduction photography. He has been working with traditional analog cameras, such as Leica, while digital photographs are rarely found in his work. He prefers black-and-white photography to create his own unique version of reality.
