Die Fotografen: Florian Manz, Lene Münch, Julius Schrank und Lucas Wahl

We are four young photographers based in Berlin (Germany), Hanover (Germany) and Hamburg (Germany).

We see ourselves as photojournalists. Our images tell stories and we are interested in well-researched issues. We aim to reach the highest level of quality. Rather than just scratching the surface, we want to know about the backgrounds, to understand the circumstances and to show our points of view.

We live in different cities and yet we share the same goal:
We want to learn from each other, give ourselves feedback and push each other forward.

We’ve got different focuses and different photographic styles. We can creatively realize different issues and photograph them in our respective ways. We’re flexible, spontaneous and always open towards new ideas and challenges.

Besides our individual projects we’re planning to work on joint projects and exchange our knowledge. Beyond just marketing our work we want to support each other in the best possible way and display our skills.

Therefore we founded Kollektiv25 at the end of 2009.
