Photographer Guenter Knop was born as a man and as a creator in Germany. But to the bright, overflowing artist, the Old World seemed cramped and squeezed. Therefore, Knop moved to the USA and there, across the ocean, has been striking the viewer with his beautiful and extraordinary works for a quarter of a century. The photographer combines surrealism and Hellenistic classics in his photographs. He is faithful to black and white photography and even without color offers vivid impressions and a storm of emotions. (Careful! Nude).

Gunther Knop can be called one of the most unusual photographers of our time. He creates almost like Dali, without recognizing the framework and stereotypes. Knop very rarely works with professional models. His style is to take a girl by the hand on the street or in a cafe, inspired by her beauty, plasticity and energy, and make her his muse.

The photographer boldly uses complex, fantastic scenery and does not refuse Photoshop. Any of Gunther Knop's photographs can be framed and made part of the interior. They are flawless from an artistic point of view and are always non-standard.

Knop considers not only the great Salvador Dali to be his teacher. He is inspired by the sculptors of antiquity Phidias, Praxiteles, Scopas, Leochar, Lysippus. This is clearly visible in many of the author's studio works. The master exposes the light in such a way that women's bodies become like statues, while preserving their vitality.

Now Gustav Knop is basking in the rays of glory. His exhibitions are held in the USA, Great Britain, France, Germany, Russia, Australia, Japan and Poland. But, as befits a real genius, the photographer is far from the roar of fanfare distracting from creativity. The photographer does not follow the public's lead, he just offers his creations. So far, he is able to give the viewer exactly what he wants.
