On his travels around the globe, the Paris based photographer seeks man-made, but unintended beauty in city- and landscapes, that reflects the very essence of the spot. An abandoned parking lot, an unexpected view on the skyline or just an old brothel in Greece: the inadvertently emerging poetry. There is always the human trace - functionality that becomes beauty, the coincidental ensemble that turns into appealing elegance.

Christian Kretschmar was born in 1968, studied music from the age of 12 at the music college Detmold, Germany. He works worldwide as a freelance musician and photographer since 25 years.
