Christoph Siegert Hamburg photographers

Christoph Siegert lives and works between Hamburg and Cape Town. He candidly admits to becoming a photographer "only because I was too lazy to paint".

Although manifold in his choice of subject and theme his work shows recurring characteristics in both content and style, with colour playing an especially important role. His range covers staged images, reportage and spur-of-the-moment shots: "My work is created snapshots - at times composed, at others simply capturing the moment".
