Fine Art Photographer, Paul Christener Photography

The idea behind In Search of Silence was born in 2014 during Paul Christener’s first stay in Greenland. Together with his wife, they trekked in complete solitude for weeks. There, he realized his deep need for silence. After that, he began to search for moments of silence. Christener is fascinated by gloomy views, by dark and heavy clouds, by cold water, and by huge snow walls. His preference is to work in soft light because there are no dark shadows or harsh highlights. He tries to incorporate fog, rain, and falling snow. As a result, a well-known or famous location is almost never in his work. He describes his work this way: “To locate such places is one thing; to be there at the right time is much more difficult. The success of my work relies on timing and a lot of luck. In all cases, my method of photography reduces life to what fits into my backpack.”
