People & Portraits

I (Christoph) love photography and especially taking pictures of people. Establishing eye contact, confirming if it is ok to take a photo and then waiting for the perfect moment – what an amazing way to communicate with people even if you don’t speak the same language!

Below is a (hopefully constantly growing 🙂 ) collection of some of the pictures I took of people during our trip.
