Wolfgang Illner

Wolfgang Illner, born 1953 in Mecklenburg (North-Germany), has been dealing with photography intensively for the last ten years. Already very early his artistic abilities were supported by his parents focussing on the education of painting skills - especially from his 14-th birthday on he was occupied with painting and graphics. Until after his school leaving examination he was trained by different artists from the fields of graphic, sculpture and advertising graphic.

Yet already at the age of 20 he exchanged his drawing pencil for a reflex camera. His professional duties though left him only little time for free photographic works. Apart from photographic works in his professional everyday life Illner has been occupied with digital photo processing since 1996. Consequently the further creative occupation with photography developed into a second important sphere of activity.
