The photographer

My name is Felix Dorn and I’m a passionate photographer. I was born in 1991 in Wiesbaden, Germany, and grew up in the city of Braunschweig. 2011 I moved to the tyrolean city of Innsbruck, Austria. I really appreciate the various opportunities the Alps offer, so that I became kind of an Outdoor Enthusiast in the past years. For studying purposes I’ve spent a lot of time in Latin America, which certainly had a very big impact on my personal evolution as well as on my current thinking.

Not only due to my work at the Institute of Geography (Working Group Development Studies and Sustainability Science) social and environmental topics are important to me. This is why I try to combine my photography with those issues. Next to my projects (see below) you will find some small projects, photo essays and photo reports in the photojournalism section.

All pictures you find on my website are available as Prints as well as for licensing. See my shop for more information.

Photography Projects

This website shall present some of my photography projects: While All’Aperto is an ongoing project which covers all my outdoor activities and landscape photography, some social projects – intended to be temporary – are currently in the planning.

One (not only photography) project which I feel very strongly about is Wayna Warma: Wayna Warma is a place for children in Cusco. The main task is to support and encourage socially disadvantaged children and young people. Thereby, Wayna Warma enables them to make their way out of poverty. If you want to know how to help these kids you should can read the full report.

Moreover, in 2017 I had the chance to spend some time out in the African bush of Botswana. Although shooting wildlife has never been my preferred style of photography I would definitely consider it as ‚addictive‘. I cannot image a more paradisiac place on earth. Although I’m not religious, I could not avoid the term Eden for this project. You can see the results of this trip in African Eden as well as in the gallery.
