Christian Karl - Born in 1973 - Living in Munich - Working with Canon and Hasselblad
I was born in Munich and grew up in the surroundings of Vienna. I completed the medical school of the university of vienna and i've been working in hospitals since 2001.The last 10 years i engaged myself in artistic photography. Due to motivation and help from my friends i had my first exhibition in the February of 2015.
My first camera i got as a present from my sister for a 4 months journey to Australia and the South Pacific. Inspired by that i got my first digital camera for a 6 month adventure in south america. Sadly it got lost/stolen along the way.
During that time i started to distance myself from the sheer reflection of holiday stills and attempted to move on to a more abstract way of taking pictures. With the use of pictorial language i tried to create a new experience for the beholder. In there i find my intention, my interests, my admiration for photography.
