Photographer

Born 1975 in Germany, based in Malta; works and lives nomadically

Arved Gintenreiter is a photographer with focus on emotional storytelling, combining classic photography with audio elements and text. His works discuss universal social and political matters.

Born 1975 in Fürstenfeldbruck, Germany, partly growing up in Pakistan and Turkey, he navigated diverse cultures, norms, and points of view throughout his life – still living and working nomadically. Though he had already been passionate about photography as a teen, his professional career first took a different turn: master’s degree in business economics, traineeship as a journalist, reporter and editor for a news agency. 2009 he breaks with his prior career and follows his heart pursuing photography.

First, he contributes to picture-alliance photo stock agency as a freelancer and teaches photography workshops. In recent years, he concentrates on own projects, exploring how to overcome limitations of classic reporting by transforming complex subjects into audio-visual experiences. 2015-2021 he works on his latest show “Evolibrium – Transformative Chaos at a Crossroads”, where he explores a (fictional?) change of the natural environment beyond imagination.
