Ten years ago, painter Dirk von Burgsdorff met photographer Horst Gatscher; the two decided to join their respective disciplines and create a unique medium that they refer to as Photo Painting. Photo paintings are photographs comprised of multiple layers, with each layer representing a processing step. Each step is documented photographically, forming the foundation for the next layer, uniting all of the techniques used to create a photographic image.

Gatscher von Burgsdorff's process begins with a sequence of painterly designs that are carefully studied through the photographic gaze; the possibilities of illumination, viewing angles, and exposure times are utilized to form their compositions. As both examine different means of representation, their space of action expands; the artistic decisions of both the painter and the photographer are of equal measure. The defining concepts in their work are collaboration, while thematically the work often examines existing works of literature.
