Malte Jäger is a Berlin/Germany based freelance photographer.
In his work, he is mainly searching for human nature. What drives people to live their life the way they do? That’s what he tries to find out, understand and share with others. He started taking photos neither for technical reasons, nor because photography was his hobby ever since: He’s been using the medium photography to get the chance to look behind curtains which wouldn’t be opened for him if he wasn’t using his camera in a journalistic way. And of course, he loves to meet and learn to know people. Since human behavior is what he is interested in, you will certainly find faces in almost all of his images. In general, he is working under real life conditions for journalistic purposes. The people he works with are almost always captured in the conditions they live in.
