  • Text by Lea Rieck

Most interested in human beings and the German tristesse, photographer Juri Gottschall draws a picture of his own view of the country. Satellite Voices asks him about his inspirations and work.

Satellite Voices: What was the first thing you ever made?
Juri Gottschall: Probably some drawings or a funny sculpture out of food.

SV: What’s your dream project?
Juri Gottschall: I would really like to walk through every street of my hometown, ringing on almost everyone's doorbell and taking some photos of these people in their homes. I'm very interested in other people's lives and how they live. Especially in the visual way.

SV: What do you wish you had written / created?
Juri Gottschall: Actually I can't think of anything - I can still create everything I want to.

SV: Who’s work / art / music would you recommend on checking out?
Juri Gottschall: At the moment, I am very impressed by the work of the fantastic silversmith and artist Johannes Borst.

SV: How do you describe your work?
Juri Gottschall: I'm always trying to conserve a part of everyday beauty and I believe photography is the right tool to do this. I don't consider myself as an artist. I much more try to be an observer of reality who gets inspired by the things other people do and create in this world.
