Anke Linz and Andreas Oettinger, aka Billy und Hells, are two photographers from Germany whose works have been featured in galleries worldwide. While previously focusing on fashion photography, they started forming their own style by accidentally forgetting to take a black and white negative out of a developer. Later on, the artists discovered a technique which reduces colors, but makes them more intense. These events led to the result that all of Billy und Hells’ portraits are easy to be recognized for their unique and stunning identity. Exhibited at Snap! Space courtesy of CU1 Gallery.
