HeIlo, my name is Lukas Ratius. I was born in 1989. I am a student of communication design and a freelance documentary photographer based in Saarbrücken, Germany.
What I like the most about carrying a camera is, that it is often giving me access to situations that otherwise would been denied to me. In general I use my photography to approach and document strange places and situations, while being mostly interested in uncommon, bizarre circumstances and people who are forced to live on the edge of their usual environment, or choose so for themselves. Always viewing from the outside angle, I try to be an observer, not simply a voyeur.
