Chris “Candid” Schirrmacher

Chris Candid lives in Berlin, Germany. He is a founding member of the Berlin1020 street photography collective  and was a commended photographer, Sony World Photography Awards in 2017. “Street photography to me is a challenge, tension and relaxation at the same time. You never know, what’s waiting around the next corner. It’s all speed, predicting what’s going happen. And of course being able to deal with people. For me a smile goes a long way when it comes to connecting with people.”

Chris work has been published in several books. He was also a jury member of an online photo contest of the Eye Photo Magazine.
