BIOGRAPHY

Yannic is a freelance photographer from Zug, Switzerland. His passion for photography began in his teenage years. After receiving an old Zenit 35mm camera as a gift, he began to experiment with analog photography and the image making process. After his military service, he moved to Paris to undergo an education in fine art photography. His interests include landscape, architecture and minimalism.

Influenced by the old masters of film photography, German Romanticism and the New Objectivity movement, Yannic strives to create clean and aesthetic photographs with a passion for black and white. Although skilled in both the analog and digital photographic mediums, he remains passionate about analog photography and still practices the skill today. Dedicated, reliable and always striving for perfection, whatever his assignment.
