About Me


(MM changed rules: instead of making it better, they try to charge us. We can live without MM - but MM cannot live without us. People come to MM to see OUR pictures. WE should never pay for it! My contact:

I am Frank Tophoven, born 1960 in Germany. After a while in Barcelona I am living now in a more or less abandoned middle-age village in the Catalonian Pyrenees about three hours drive from Barcelona.

I was: photographer and writer for books and magazines.
(very frequently international published)

I am: artist, working with words, photography, painting, objects, performance, installations (and more).

Where is my art about? Hard to describe. Can you imagine an eternal memory? Maybe a rock still remembers the first humans. Maybe humans are still carrying memories of their live in forests and caves.
I am searching in the rocks for signs of the humans and in the humans for signs of the rocks... Ah, forget it... nobody will understand me... and worse cause I am trying to describe it in English...

If I choose a model, it is always extraordinary beautiful.
Of course that is not the point.
There is a concept. But in the same moment I want to show a part of her/his personality, better: a normally hidden aspect of the personality, you might call it spirit. Sometimes photography can do that. It should be more and deeper than a well-done pose.

I don't shoot with the idea of the ready picture in my head. I try to avoid thinking too concrete about a shooting before doing it. I love to explore, to find something together with the model. I love movements, improvisations and I never expect anything. But it should be strong!

Maybe it doesn’t look so, but people say that I am easy to work with...

Cause I am performing myself from time to time I opened an account as model/performer here on MM: espacio i libertad
I don’t care too much about it. But as far as I have time: to help another artist and to participate in an interesting project... would be nice!

Thank you a lot for your interest!
