“I am making photographs to understand what live means to me.”
My name is Richard Buettner and I am a German/British photographer, currently based in Berlin, Germany (in fact, the only Brit who can speak Bavarian accent properly).
Somewhere along the way, I began to realize that the best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do. The whole point of taking pictures is so that you don’t have to explain things with words. Regarding equipment: When people ask me what equipment I use – I tell them my eyes.
