Pierre Kälin


Pierre Kälin was born in Toronto, Canada and grew up in Zurich , Switzerland .

His pictures tell the story of everyday life,
both from a social as well as from a cultural point of view.

His approach is simply and preferably carried out
with natural light. To work quickly and make a connection with the subject
is his credo. It is easy for him to interact with the person in front of the camera.
For his documentary images he works alone with minimal equipment in wide angleand tries to remain unnoticed , to capture the image as it is offered to him spontaneously .
