Moritz's photography is straight, pure and strong. It is driven by his passion for beauty and his passion for working with people. His image-making is all about communication, between the photographer and his subject, between the picture and the viewer. The emotional state-of-mind of the shooting is conveyed to the final picture. Moritz creates images that gleam, glow and steam, they come out of their frame and pull you back in.
Lives with his family in Vienna, Austria.
