: Rio de Janeiro: Christian Gaul Photography

Christian Gaul's images reflect the kinds of culture he has assimilated throughout his life; born in Germany, he grew up in Brazil and graduated from New York University in 1992.

Lately, the photographer has been spending a lot of time between Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo but continues to travel all over the world. His pictures contain a tropical spontaneity combined with a keen sense of lighting and a fresh view on contemporary fashion, portrait and lifestyle subjects.

Clients include Vogue, Trip, Nico, Fiat, Schweppes, VIX Swimwear, Women's Secret, Adidas, Sony and Globo Communications. Christian has recently photographed campaigns for Renner, TIM and Iguatemi Shopping Centers and directed his first movie for ViVO Mobiles.

Aside from his commercial work, Christian is preparing his fifth solo exhibition titled 'Simples' - a poetic examination of blood. His first book is also due for publication, a compilation of more than 10 years of portraiture work.
