Photo by Ton Oliveira

Gregor Hofbauer was born in Vienna, Austria, in 1982. He studied at the University of Applied Sciences of Salzburg (MultiMediaArt) where he was able to refine his eye for photography. After graduation he moved to New York to gain experience in visual storytelling. Since 2008 his life is based back in Vienna. 

His fondness for spaces and the interaction of light and objects, as well as a trained eye for design and composition cumulated to Gregor's focus on interior photography. Taking pictures of spaces means for him to recreate the natural, yet personal impression of a room. Using available light sources and the original features of a room is very important to him.

The same principle applies to photo stories and reportages Gregor is shooting. The pictures just show what is visible for the human eye but also emphasize the feeling of the moment. Everything available to the scene is used and nothing is added to create the focus for the special moment.
