Klaus Tiedge (lives in Cape Town, South Africa)
I was always been driven by curiosity and the desire to travel the world. My fascination is underpinned with questions such as: “what is life like for others and how do other people live on our planet, how diverse is nature and what else is out there and beyond? ”
Pursuing answers to these questions has led me on numerous photo trips to India, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Japan, Mexico, Australia, USA, Brazil and Ecuador.
The lens becomes my eyes and I literally devour my experiences and document them forever.
Finally, in 2001, a photo trip brought me to South Africa. I liked it so much that I moved herewith my wife Sandra and we decided to make Cape Town the center of our lives which we now share with two children.
My curiosity for Africa hasn’t abated as I find myself travelling more than ever. Whether portraying her people, animals or landscapes, I find that Africa is good for my soul. It is rich, genuine and satisfying. I pray I do her justice.
