Michael Liebert was born in Vienna, lives and works as a freelance advertising photographer in Lower Austria. Since his childhood, he felt a deep connection to photography and art. In the beginning it was movies and music videos that Liebert liked to be inspired by. In digital photography he has the opportunity to create worlds without visual limits. For him photography is more than his profession – it's his passion. This is confirmed by numerous national and international awards, as well as exhibitions in Austria and abroad.

This work was created for an advertising campain for the company Stolner, a firm producing high quality catering equipment. The title of the campain was "Professional Cooling Without Compromise". The claim is to guarantee good quality of the food as well as maintain the quality with the delivery service. Through the humorous approach, it should be easier for the viewer to get a better access. For finding a good advertising solution I aproached this rather uninspiring theme in a humorous way.
Open Your Eyes
Michael Liebert was looking for a visual stylistic device which he finally found in a plastic wrap. The shape and materiality were created by wind and his resistance. The resulting figures, whether human or animal, depend on the viewers imagination. Similar to clouds in the sky. Imagination knows no limits.
