What is outside is no longer outside. Trees, forests, mountains, rivers, lakes. Michael Nguyen has transformed these elements in his artworks into feelings, fantasies and dreams. They become part of our inner nature, part of the human soul.Through the subjective lens, Michael Nguyen gives all a new perspectives, a new soul. “Michael Nguyen's photography is the art of showing more than you can see. Making visible - worshipping the invisible, he walks with the third eye of a wanderer through the visual adventure of life.”His works does not reflect reality but are the interpretation of a moment. In his art photography, the work is often created by making changes to the original photograph in image editing programs, where the creativity of the artist knows no bounds.In my Photographic Paintings from my series "Nature is within us"  I work out a distinctive aesthetic effect of my pictures. Most of the motifs are outside, in daylight. Among my most popular motifs here are landscapes, riversides, forests. In the seasons autumn and spring I find the most popular moods for me. Characteristic for my pictures of this portfolio are blurred, blurred contours, sometimes scattered light and often the renunciation of the reproduction of details, similar in style to a painting.This pictures taken in and around Gauting and in the Starnberg district - Gauting is a city in the Upper Bavarian administrative district of Starnberg and lies southwest of Munich on the river Würm.The texts to the pictures were written by Bernd Wiedemann

Who does not feel reminded of a painting by the impressionists Monet or Caillebotte in this photo by Michael Nguyen? The comparison is not so far-fetched: after the construction of the Munich-Starnberg railroad line in 1854, more and more city dwellers came to the romantic and charming Würm Valley for a cure or summer retreat, to relax and enjoy the enchanting landscape. Industry and companies also took advantage of the benefits of the location. Artists came with their daughters and wives, and they painted, drew portraits, taught, and indulged in all kinds of cultural activities. The villa colony of the Wilhelminian era thus brought the upper-middle-class cultural life to the craftsmen and farmers' village. Freethinkers such as the eccentric Theodor von Hallberg-Broich (the "Hermit of Gauting") or filmmaker Herbert Achternbusch found and still find a home in Gauting, at least temporarily. This explains the partly special "Gauting feeling" from the mixture of old-established, established cultural business and a touch of Bavarian anarchism...
