About Felix Brokbals

I was born in 1989 in Bamberg and now live in Halle an der Saale. After my apprenticeship as a media designer, I studied multimedia and VR design at Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design and have been working as a freelancer for quite some time. Photography accompanies me for more than ten years now.

Since 2010 I have been trying to capture people in moments in which they are completely with themselves. In this way, the photos tell personal stories. People appear completely without unusual accessories or special outfits. In all peace and quiet and without great excitement. All of this - peace and quiet and an atmosphere that allows everyone involved to be authentic - is what photography is for me. What fascinates me is the feeling that accompanies me when I'm photographing, to capture it through my pictures and to make it experienceable as well as interpretable for others.
