Like an x-ray, Hennric Jokeit's photographs expose both the concealed and the darkness of things - while providing an esthetic enjoyment.
Photographer and Chief Editor of Fotolot, Perlentaucher
"The Poet from my homeland, Rumi has a poem called “The elephant in the dark room”, which almost everyone is familiar with. For me Hennric’s camera (obscura) is that dark room, and what one gets from his photos is just one aspect of the elephant. One needs to go through these pages over and over again to understand the truth. That is what a true work of art should be."

"Hennric Jokeit captures those parts of icebergs that lie beneath the surface. His images reflect the heaviness of sounds and light that are impossible to grasp on the surface. This world seems uninhabited, all souls are absent. The living is frozen into a mask, wearily tossed away, causing anxiety.
Giorgio von Arb, photographer
"We deceive ourselves by thinking with all the new technologies, which we are still excited about, we can have a better and more complete view of the world. But we still need wanderers, storytellers, troubadours, writers, painters and photographers to capture a moment and enable other people to share the experience. Hennric has captured a fragment of time and space in his magic box to tell us his stories, to share what he has seen through that little pinhole."

"Hennric Jokeits "Negative Visions" are cool, precise, dissecting. As dramatic as touching. In a word: extraordinary.“
