about me

My name is Christine Till. I am German, but I live in the United States. I have been involved in photography since childhood. Photography is my calling, my profession, and traveling is my passion.

Fortunately I was able to combine the two of them for the last 35 years. Experiencing other cultures, meeting people from other communities and other countries and seeing the beauty as well as the ugliness of the world has helped me understand that all of our lives are interconnected and individual at the same time.It has made me appreciate my own home and culture as well as that of the people I've met and the lands I've seen.

As the images of other photographers have inspired me to explore the world, I hope my own contributions will inspire others. I love what I do and spend a lot of time refining, perfecting and even obsessing over my work. If that's all you ever know about me, it's enough to say you know me well. Here's what an art critic and writer once wrote about my work:

"Christine's photography work is unique and filled with spirit. All her photos talk and tell a beautiful story. I can't single one image out, because every time I think I have seen my favourite of her photographs, the next one stops me in my tracks. Her pictures have inspired many of my attempts for writing words as I am sure her art has inspired many others.

The equipment I use is of little interest to me – its only a tool to bring ideas to life.
