Enrico Markus Essl is a self-taught street photographer, who was born in 1970 in Linz, Upper Austria, raised in Salzburg, and currently based back in Linz. For Enrico street photography means “freedom to let my creativity flow and to capture special moments in a unique way”, he inspired by wonderful patterns, colours, shadows, geometric elements and unusual scenes. “Since my early childhood I have been interested in photography,” he says. “I detected street photography for myself and it’s been haunting me until this day”.
The urban jungle of cities, the people living there, the crucial moments and the endless trips through the streets and places are stirring my desire to capture moments.
Enrico Markus Essl uses Leica X1 camera with 36mm fixed focal length lens.
