Dan Trautwein

``Photography allows me to show the world how I see it.``

Dan Trautwein is a Stuttgart based photographer, cinematographer and director. He is specialized in documentary and portrait photography and music video producing and works analogue as well as digital. Dan travels between different worlds to capture unique stories with an emphasis on social matters and deep individual portraits.

Dan’s work evolves around the close contact to the protagonists in his visual stories. He is driven by curiosity and a strong interest in different concepts of identity.

His visual language wanders between dreamy colors and rough analogue pictures.

Always on the search for authenticity.
