Hugh Kretschmer’s Photography

Hugh Kretschmer’s photographies have been described as curious, imaginative, unusual, conceptual and a little dark, but dark in a good way. And indeed it is a bit surrealistic giving the viewer’s imagination full vent.

His work is often dreamlike and playful, yet confronting the viewer with current social issues. It is a commentary on the human condition, and seeks to embrace the strengths and weaknesses we all share; illustrated through quirk and irony.
The Los Angeles based photographer is specialized in advertising, photo illustration, editorial photography and design. ‘My ideas are conjured-up by my dreams and desires of what life would be, if only…’ Kretschmer states.

Kobi Levi and his amazing shoes.

Graduated from Bezalel academy of art & design, Jerusalem 2001. Specialize in footwear design and development. Working as a freelance designer. Collaborating with both Israeli and international companies, currently working on his women shoe line in Tel-Aviv, Israel. Designed commercial footwear in both Italy, China and Brazil. Presented design in various exhibitions in Tel-Aviv, Jerusalem, Tokyo, Verona, St.Etienne, Berlin etc’… ” In my artistic footwear design the shoe is my canvas. The trigger to create a new piece comes when an idea, a concept and/or an image comes to mind. The combination of the image and footwear creates a new hybrid and the design/concept comes to life. The piece is a wearable sculpture. It is “alive” with/out the foot/body. Most of the inspirations are out of the “shoe-world”, and give the footwear an extreme transformation. The result is usually humoristic with a unique point of view about footwear. Another aspect of the creation is the realization. All the pieces are hand-made in my studio. The challenging technical development is the key to bring the design to life in the best way.”
