Johannes Pistorius comes from a small town on the German North Sea coast. Growing up between wind, weather and water, as a teenager, he discovered photography for himself - first analogue, later digital. Through his interest for pictures and coffee-table books he came to design. Today, Johannes has a master's degree in communication design and works as a freelance typographer in Northern Germany. Photography and his love for the sea have remained: On his journeys and excursions Johannes mainly photographs coastal landscapes and churches off the beaten track. His images appear calm and natural, showing his special feeling for light and colour moods and his eye for detail. Johannes deliberately avoids elaborate image processing. He thus conveys a genuine feeling for the moment - and shows how beautiful and worthy the protection of our environment is.
