It is not the camera or lens that makes a photo vibrant. It takes it technically.
Though it is the moment. The subject and content, light, contrast.
Seeing a symmetry or not, a composition that is somehow pleasant for the eye and the mind.
A space to think.
Faces shaped like landscapes, landscapes shaped by life, by nature.
Human interactions and movements in the streets.
Humans and their creations, be it architecture, a movement or a facial expression or all at once.
Asides from photography, Felix has directed, shot and edited several abstract fashion art video pieces / short documentaries /
music videos and project / image films for the UN, the EU and GIZ, DWMC, amongst others.
In 2017, one of his short docs was nominated for the German Human Rights Film Prize.
