About Heinrich Wegmann
Heinrich Wegmann was born in 1960 in South Tyrol, Italy. His interest in photography began at an early age of about 12 years old where he picked it up as a hobby and has developed into a deep passion today. His knowledge and expertise in photography is completely self-taught. After completing his secondary school, he studied Architecture at the university in Innsbruck, Austria until 1988, when he moved to Venice, Italy, where he finished his university studies in 1995.
In 1985, he travelled for the first time to China. This marked the beginning of his fascination of other cultures and the curiosity of their everyday lives. He then visited Tibet, Nepal, India and Russia living amongst the communities for months at a time in his quest to understand the different cultures.
As his love for photography grew, so did his interest in participating in exhibitions and photography competitions.
