Welcome, I'm Daniel Fort. As a son of czech parents, Iwas born and raised in Munich.
After a career as a CAD-Designer, I studiedPhotography at the University of Applied Sciences Bielefeld and at the YrkeshögskolanNovia in Finland. I got my degree in 2012.
 
Photography for me is the best way to deal with the versatilityof our planet. I'm always looking for newdestinations and adventures. The topics are wide spread. Foreign cultures,people and their environment, landscapes, nature, sports and social themes.
One of my concerns in my work areto capture the spirit of the things, to look for something poetic in our worldand culture. An important part of my work is dealing with the relationship ofhuman beings to the earth, the natural environment, the space we are living inand the experience and feeling of nature by humans.
In my personal work I try to get as close as possibleto our native environment. So, for example, I consistently stay for at least24h on certain spots in the wilderness or I'm hiking for many days, trying tocapture my experiences, thoughts and what I have seen. Approaching in this way,I'm able to understand and experience a particular place completely and in his widediversity.
Furthermore it is important for meto capture other cultures in pictures, so people can appreciate different waysof living. I would like to acquaint the society with the numerous things whichare existing on our earth and sensitize people to our world.
 
Currently I'm living and working in Bielefeld, Munichand Prague.
