Ib Trebbien has through most of a long career mainly worked as an editorial photographer. As such he is probably best known for his pictures from the world of motorsport. In parallel with the general editorial work, he has also experimented with other motifs and photographic expression and sought new ways in his pictures.
‘I always seeks to adapt my photos to the context, they are made for. The image that works optimally in a printed magazine, won’t necessarily work on a website or in an art gallery. Therefore, I often work with several different versions of the same motif,’ he says.
Even though he pays tribute to the ‘Keep it simple’ rule, he don’t mind using complicated techniques in order to achieve a simplified expression in his pictures.
