Since the early 1990s, the German photographer and biologist Jochen Lempert (born 1958) has used analogue, black-and-white photography to convey his gently reverential vision of nature and sentience--whether that of animals, plants or humans. Often grainy, sometimes verging on abstraction, and sometimes focusing minutely on the activity of some tiny creature, his photographs exude a simple pleasure in fleeting tranquility. Lempert has also taken a quietly particular stance on the presentation of his work: in exhibitions, his images are presented unframed and tacked up on walls, and his books (among them Recent Field Work and Coevolution) are always immediately identifiable for their modest but exquisite design, printing and paper. Continuing this tradition of gorgeous bookmaking, Jochen Lembert: Phenotype reproduces 450 of his works, most of them arranged in groups and sequences, from more than 20 years of artistic production.
Since the early 1990s, German photographer and former biology student, Jochen Lempert, has focused on animal life--in the wild, the museum of natural history, the zoo, the urban environment and pop culture. These black-and-white images comprise the largest presentation to date of his work.

Zoologist Jochen Lempert has consecrated himself to animal photography. Relating to his scientific fieldwork in humorous and poetic ways, his serial black-and-white photographs attempt to give order to nature. This monograph features studies of swans in swimming formation; profile portraits of duck-like birds with charismatic beaks; images of a monkey wedged under a rock and a deer crossing the street. Lempert's photographs of baby strollers lined with all variety of sheepskins are dry and funny; his studies of waves have an understated power.
