Travel photographer Nils Kuelper

Nils Kuelper is a street and travel photographer from Germany, capturing scenes the way he saw them. He loves to combine architecture shots with people.

"My whole life was based on visual impressions and inspirations. I draw comics since I was eight and later on, I did some films about skateboarding in the streets with my friends. Later on, I became a DJ and did my own parties in various locations. Some years later I was fascinated by VJing and bought myself a laptop creating visuals for a well know electronic music event in Hamburg.

Photography was always my companion all over the years. But I did not find the thing that touches my heart and made me constantly thinking about it. After trying different styles of photography, I saw the work of international street and documentary photographers and was overwhelmed by the magic that lays inside this form of art. After running around with bulky gear for some years I stumbled about a new smaller camera and rediscovered the full joy of photography. As a Taoist and philosopher inspired by the writings of Lao Tse, Michael Ende and Seneca I try to be a good observer in the world of the ten thousand things that are going on around me.

Today I try to mix architecture, street and travel photography without sticking only to one genre." - Nils Kuelper.
