Interview with photographer Tobias Teich


 About you:
I am Tobias Teich, originally from Kiel, Germany. Now, i am studying in Braunschweig enviromental engineering.               
What is it that attracts you the most of what you have around you?  the people in my live are very important for my work. i'd like to take photos of my good friends. And the city, the urban live, has a strong attraction to me. I think a lot about questions why we built streets, houses, skyscraper, why we need so much concrete in our enviroment.
Tell us about your experience as  photographer what did it give you? For me, it is an possibility to picture the questions i mentioned in the previous answer.                 
 Three adjectives to describe yourself. cyclist
 A film, a book and a song film: Into the Wild book: Blechtrommel (Günter Grass) song: Lobby by The Go Find               
What camera do you use?  lense? I use a Rolleiflex T with a fixed lense (mf) and a Minolta SRT 101 with a 35mm or 50mm lense.
Tell about exhibition if you ‘ve had any. My first was a group-exhibition in Braunschweig. After a little one in Duisburg and in Braunschweig, I put my first exhibition, called Projekt#Riga, in a real galery – the EinRaum5-7. We had an awesome vernissage with a great DJ and a lot of nice people had been there.

 Do you sell prints? How do you make it and where can someone buy? It is possible to buy my photobook at etsy (

What was your most big success? I think it was this big exhibition last year and the publishment of the photoook, of course.
Favourite photographer. I am part of small group of german photographers. We are very different, but we have the same opinion about photography. They are an important inspiration for me.
Describe some of your projects My last big project was „Projekt#Riga“. I cycled 1700km from Braunschweig to Riga, Latvia. It was a great adventure and i gained many experiences. The output was the exhibion and the photobook.
Your main concept. That's a tricky question and very hard to answer. Maybe, it is my concept to show the world we are living in how it is really is – for me. I do not try to embelish anything in my work.
What is your occupation, job, interest besides photography. I am student at the technical university of Braunschweig. I am studying and working at the institute of hydraulic constructions. Water has a strong attraction for me.                       
Which advice would you give someone who wants to become a (professional) photographer? Try anything you want, try to find your way
Do you work as photographer? I woked has a photographer for my university and for a sports club. But most of my work, i do for me – not for the money.                                                           
 Your plans.
We will see, maybe a series about cyclist or about students of enviromental engineering.
