Christian Maislinger Salzburg Portrait & Celebrity Photographers

Christian Maislinger was born in Austria in 1974. His first passion was sports, especially the 110-metre hurdles, but it was during his career as a professional athlete that he discovered his love for photography. In 1998 he began assisting at a well-established studio in Salzburg, focusing on analogue art photography and working for international artists and galleries such as Thaddaeus Ropac.

Christian is currently well-known for his carefully and intimately staged photographic portraits of athletes, musicians, and celebrities like Christian Taylor, Simon Fourcade, The Crystal Fighters, Radiohead, Keaton Henson, Jo Hamilton or Jette Joop, among others.

His Images appeared on album covers, in magazines like GQ and The Rolling Stone. He photographed campaigns for international advertising agencies and companies.

Christian is currently working on a gallery project called “Circus Circus,” an intimate journey behind the façade of immortality and loneliness of celebrities.
