ABOUT

Christopher Schroeder is a photographer whose work oscillates between documentary and fine art photography that is dedicated to dystopic and utopic prospects of the overall humankind experience.

His photographs are characterized by a meditative silence,

[works: ALL MOUNTAIN, FAITH, RAIN, SEA BE-LONGING, SILENCE, STUDYING CLOUDS]

a deep melancholy and poetry that lies in the momentum of loneliness or being in transit

[works: NEW YORK – A CITY AT SLEEP, THE GERMANY TRAIN, URBAN PERSPECTIVES]

and a reminding view on people behavior and history.

[works: CONCENTRATION CAMP DACHAU, THE FISHERMEN FROM NGAPALI BEACH, FOOD OR WHAT WE EAT, THE MEDITERRANEAN, THE USE OF BODIES]

Since he is German, he also tries to reflect what this means to him.

[work: MADE IN GERMANY].

Christopher visited about 50 countries on more than 100 journeys, where the major part of his work has been created over a period of 20 years.

He was born in 1979 and lives/ lived in Hamburg, Munich and Beijing.

Christopher holds a master in engineering & economics and passed the Documentary Photography class at the University of the Arts London.

Beyond that he participated in several meditation silent retreats, e.g. in Indonesia and Norway, and completed an intense self-awareness training, while he practices Yoga and meditation. That can be found in his photographic work.
