Living in between two cities, Vienna and Berlin, photographer Daniel Gebhart de Koekkoek currently works for various renowned magazines including Vanity Fair, Monocle, VICE, The Financial Times to name a few.
Aside from successful commercial career, Daniel works on a number of engaging personal projects that reflect his experiences and the experiences of people he is surrounded by.
His latest book The World We Live In is a journal of Daniel's wanderings around the world. The viewer is taken on a visual trip to a number of separate universes, some bigger, some smaller. He plays with the idea of being able to move through several worlds in one day, by showing us the photographs of winter campers in St. Moritz and then the nuclear power plant in Zwentendorf. Later, he takes us to anonymous tracts of land and cities where the individual gets lost in the crowd.
The World We Live In opens a door to various inner and outer realities, and at the end brings us to the simple conclusion: this is the world we live in.
