About Dieter Wanjura
Photography is important for me since I was 9 years old. It´s my way to notice and describe my experiences and my understanding of the world around me. 2004 I made the transition from analogue to digital photography, but still kept my darkroom for the sake of old times. At the moment I´m thinking about going back to B/W film and paper for special projects. My main photography-themes are Plants/Nature, Landscape, Abstract Compositions, Street Photography (hard to present due to the legal situation here in Germany) and what I call "Moments" (i.e. impressions of untold storys which you can find in your daily life).
I´m a medical doctor and my line of work has a lot to do with images (Ultrasound, X-Ray, Szinigraphy). In Photography I am an autodidact. During "analogue times" I was very impressed by the techniques and art of Ansel Adams and Brett Weston and their handling of light and contrast.
