Michael Biach is an Austrian photojournalist beginner who has traveled numerous countries for more than decade before he started to document his experiences with a camera two years ago.  Since then his major photographic interest lies in documenting social issues, human rights activities and working conditions. “I am fascinated in documenting other people’s lives, their living and working conditions, simple moments of everyday life. I always treat people with respect, try to never bother them or photograph them out of a voyeuristic view. If you are respectful, if you first get in touch with people and try to talk to them, to understand them, before you grab your camera and do your photographs, then your images will be honest. I always try to improve my ability in empathy, so I am sure my pictures will get more authentic.” MICHAEL BIACH To commission Michael or to request prints of his work: Michael lives and works in Vienna, Austria.
