Lu Mazen


My focus is on fine art photography, on still lives and images of our world in the form of still lives. I portray the strange moments of daily life. I am interested in all phenomena of light and how light transforms the seemingly obvious into a new reality – thus creating the magic of the image. I have been a traveller. I explore the world, people and cultures. I focus currently on the microcosm of daily life – made visible and connected to inner places, emotions or memories. Since 2001, I work on photography, after studies at renowned international universities in Germany, UK and Canada. I attended master courses with Josef Schulz, Sonja Braas, Jean-Christian Bourcat, Jane Evelyn Atwood and Nicolas Havette and Oded Wagenstein. I joined the summer academy in Salzburg with Eli Cortinas and attended classes at ICP and Manum. In 2021 I received a residency with the New York School of Visual Arts and joined the Despatch Residency in the New Forest in UK. I exhibit internationally, at festivals, galleries, art fairs and (German) art associations. I contributed to and won prizes in international art and photography competitions. become 3.
