Photography and Video

My world of pictures

Peter Andres

I have been involved with photography and video in fine-art for over 40 years. Learned autodidactically, but also influenced by further training in workshops with great photographers.

Much has accumulated over the years. Many of my preferences can be seen here, but far from all.

Go ahead and browse. If you like to see further pictures or videos or if you have any questions, please send me an Email.

In front of the camera ...

I am also sometimes in front of the camera.


Some of my images came out of my cameras the way you see them here. Others are more or less heavily edited and combined. I love making pictures with pictures.

Origin of the images

There are no pictures or videos from other photographers here. Not even those from the Internet.
All pictures are of myself.

There are also none that were created with AI (artificial intelligence). My own intelligence has served me well enough.


My pictures and videos

Below is a brief description of the more recent and important works. One click takes you to the picture and video series. There the pictures can also be viewed in large format.

Visible Change

I see what you don't see!

But… to see something more, sometimes you have to do something yourself:
Visible Change!

Your mobile phone will help you. At least here.

And now ?

I'll help you with that.

Zeit als Dimension?

An organic creativity


Between visible and invisible

Multidimensionality is a subject that employs me over and over since a long time. Pictures and videos can therefore not only be seen in this chapter.

A Review

The Corona age has severely restricted us all. Unfortunately! I could not think on new photo sessions with my friends because I did not want to take any risks.

But what to do with all the free time? Working from home was not possible in this sense, because I retired from professional life some time ago.

Once again, I rummaged through my photo archive and found some things that still make sense (in terms of images). The impetus to write down my “photo story” was here. The result is my retrospective.

And now ?

It is not finished yet and it probably will not be soon. There are ideas for new photo and video series. Postponed but not canceled. The necessary freedom for realization will come, hopefully soon.

The text of my retrospective is not yet translated to English but there are a lot of pictures to see.

Because of its size, the retrospective is divided into a main page and various sub-pages.

This is my Retrospective (in German).

The reversal of perspective



Analogue photography,
created at the beginning of the 1990s

In retrospect, one of my most important conceptual works.
The reversal of perspective thinking has influenced me very much in my perception of images.

My World of Pictures

Photography and Video

I take photos, create pictures and videos.
Why are there often duplicated or multiple images of the same person in one picture? From where does it come from? What is the meaning? There are not just shadows. Rather, there are double or multiple lives, dimensions. But what's the point with these dimensions? After all, we have enough of them, three! In painting as well as in photography we have to (normally) limit ourselves to one surface or two dimensions. For the rest, the third dimension, we use the perspective.

Does it continue?

Is more possible? For sure! Time as a dimension. It is just waiting to be involved. Completely normal in film and videos, easy in photography, more difficult in painting, but not unsolvable. But more is possible! An additional dimension or even more. These we do not or only badly know. They are spiritual in nature. One hardly talks about it, or one may not yet. Why?

I like this aspect, it carries on, it shows further possibilities, opens up unimagined mental games. There is much more behind as one can think. I can only make the demand: allow multidimensionality! Meet it!

Peter Andres


Born in 1952 in Bern, father architect, mother ceramist. At a young age I was already learning the process of film development and black and white enlargement in my father's darkroom. This started my experimental photography as an autodidact. Courses and workshops with renowned photographers were following. Particularly instructive were workshops with the Swiss Christian Vogt and especially with the world-famous photographer Duane Michals  (USA). He left a significant impact on me, because philosophical questions in and with photography are central to his work. I can call him one of my most influential teachers in my life!


Over the years, my ideas and demands in terms of pictorial representation have changed a lot. Conceptual statements are created with photographic methods – a kind of digital painting  as a creative game with a camera, photographs and videos as well as their components.

Since 2015 I work in my own studio in the Alten Mosterei Worb. Here I can best practice my free photography.


One never knows what Facebook does with our private data. Therefore I am no longer active there.

And another small hint

Your viewing tool for these web pages is (only because of its visual size respectively its smallness) not ideal for viewing images with a size from up to 1 x 2m. Due to the characteristics of the system, there are "certain" drawbacks. A bigger screen would help.



Much is new. In response to popular requests, the background can now also be changed. Dark or light as desired. The display can now easily be switched to the full screen. Click on the icons at the top right.

Also for suggestions and criticism I am always open.
