JAN OTTO SCHREIBER
As a kid, Schreiber always sat at the back of the class and dreamed of being somewhere far away. When he was all grown up he packed up his life and went as far away as possible, all the way to New Zealand and enrolled into a photography course.
A couple of years later he was back in Germany to work for the well-known photographer Michael Schnabel for 4 intense years and in spare time shooting his own projects on 4x5“ Linhof.
In 2009 Jan decided, it was time to grow up and to become a photographer in his own right.
Although digital is everywhere, Jan still loves the incomporable beauty of large format film.
Jan’s recent photo essay, 'Somewhere between the Shores', is getting recognition worldwide, it’s been published already in numerous media, and in a number of highly recognized photography magazines.
Jan lives and works between Munich and Sydney.
