: Christian Gaul Photography [Rio]

Christian Gaul's images reflect the various cultures he has associated with throughout his life - born in Germany, raised in Brazil and graduated from New York University.

Lately, he has been spending a lot of time in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo though he continues to travel the world. In his pictures you find "a tropical spontaneity", keen lighting and a fresh view on contemporary fashion, portrait and lifestyle photography.

His curriculum includes clients Vogue, Fiat, Women'Secret, Adidas, Sony and Globo Communications; campaigns for Renner and TIM and recently directed his first movie for Vivo Mobiles. He is booked for the forthcoming Richards autumn catalogue.

Aside from his commercial work, Christian is preparing his fifth solo exhibition titled 'Simples' - "a poetic view on blood". His first book is about to be published: a compilation of more than 10 years of portraiture accompanied by his texts describing the day each shot was taken.
