A journalist and photographer, Christina has traveled several oceans and continents, always looking for decisive moments in nature and daily life. She believes that everybody has at least one story to tell that could be interesting to thousands – and that this story will come out if you bring time, trust and talent. Tired of photographic clichés, she is looking for the quirky, epiphaniac side of people and the rest of nature. Her portraits reflect her own interaction with the sitter.
For her most recent photo exhibition Suddenly Silence she portrayed 33 refugees from Syria, Iran and Afghanistan in their new home in rural Germany. She believes that photography can be an agent for social change and understanding.
Christina Felschen is a photographer and journalist based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Her features tell global stories about human rights, migration and minorities from a local perspective. In her portraits she is interested in showing what makes someone special by bringing out their story and character in an instance. She mostly works with natural light and tries to become part of the action with her camera.
