Born in the 1980s in Germany and raised there, Holger Feroudj as a youth discovered an unchanging fascination for photography as the constant in an otherwise ever changing pool of projects and interests. Intrigued by photography as a medium to personally process two major recurring themes in his life, loss and memory, he naturally discovered the possibility not only of freezing precious moments and emotions in the frame, but to go one step further and shape and recreate memory through photography.
His photography does not always show what really happened in an objective way and clear shapes. Rather, like our memory, the photos show a biased and deceiving picture of how certain moments and emotions at the time are remembered - or want to be remembered.
They form a portal into a gone world and in their biased way celebrate loss - of time, emotions, people, memory - rather than mourning over it, thereby ultimately celebrating life in its uncertainty.
The 7188.photography project took its start in Tokyo/Japan, where Holger Feroudj has been living since 2009.
Besides from exhibitions showing his personal work, 7188.photography (Holger Feroudj) accepts commissioned work on strictly exclusive terms that guarantee the full-hearted faith and passion for the project, as a necessity for topmost quality and satisfaction of both parties. Previous commissions include work for individuals and magazines.
7188.photography (Holger Feroudj) can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss projects, works and photography.

P.S: We've heard that Holger Feroudj is an avid coffee lover and guide to some of the best cafes in Tokyo and always happy about showing them to new people and to just 'hang out' ;)
