The Photographer – Peter Prestel is actually a filmmaker. As a director, author and producer, he regularly reaches an audience of millions with his TV documentaries. He only reaches for his camera to take a photo whenever he senses a special moment. This could be on the Silk Road in Uzbekistan, in the temple complex of Tiwanaku in Bolivia, late at night in the Ginza district of Tokyo, in a forest in South Tyrol, or beside a lake in the Scottish Highlands.
Update – The image series and videos are updated with new projects at irregular intervals. Information and news is available via the social media channels below.
