Christine Turnauer


Her photographic projects are “like a journey” (Frank Horvat, 2014) of which each steps lead to the next, a photography of encounters and fascination for the diversity of mankind and at the same time “this common thread of being human” (Christine Turnauer, 2014). Her travels have given rise to inspiring and touching photographs that each capture a unique encounter and a moment of total presence.

After Vienna and New York, her work “Presence” was notably on show for a solo exhibition in Arles at the Chapelle Sainte-Anne in April 2018 in partnership with the City of Arles. Her book on this series was published by Hatje Cantz in 2014 and successively shown at Paris Photo, Photofairs San Francisco and Photofairs Shanghai.
