Born 1980 in Bonn, Germany, grown up in the Rhineland. At first business studies and diploma thesis with honors. After three and a half years as a consultant for sustainability and specialist for corporate culture analysis came the shift. What had been a professional hobby became occupation.
Autodidactically Christian Klant developed what had begun with the first own camera in his childhood. Moved to Berlin and established his first studio.
Emphasis of his international commercial work as well as his artwork lies on the portrait and reportage photography. The latter especially in the realm of sustainability and social business. As a photographer he is known for increasing the visiblity of changemakers and for telling stories with his pictures that are worth being told. He believes that an emotional and authentic visual language holds a certain potency, that deeply touches humans.
2012 the organisation Ashoka honored him with the fellowship „storyteller in residence“. His works were published many times and shown to the public at several exhibitions.
