It’s important to follow your dreams. Such is the message from German photographer Nikolaus Gruenwald who gave up his legal career in favour of his passion for images. Starting out in photography at the age of 19 with an entry-level reflex, he soon developed a sense of observation while experimenting with various photographic techniques. After several years of experience, his eye now focuses on urban photography and travel. The work of Nikolaus Gruenwald is thus characterised by a heightened awareness of architecture and special focus on documentation. Living in Stuttgart, his projects have earned him international recognition, notably during exhibitions in Germany and the United States. He has regularly published his work in books and magazines the world over.
