About me

I am Geza J. Holzinger environmentalist, award-winning photographer, visual anthropologist, based in Germany. I specialized to document the daily life of disappearing cultures, current humanitarian crises and environmental destruction and their social consequences. I began my photographic career in 1993. After several workshops and masterclass I started nature and documentary photography primarily as an addition to my magazine articles. Between 2006 and 2010 I concentrated to document the social and political issues that define our times. Since 2010 I am working as a freelancer photographer and popular science writer. My works have been published in several Hungarian magazines and I have also worked for Free Magazine (Japan), Visual Ethnography (Italy) and Asian Geographic (Singapore).

I am very lucky because my work is also my passion. Being passionate about what I do is one of the important success factor in my life. I believe that I can create real value with my ideas and work, save the environment and the endangered tribes.

A brief report about me: Asian Geographic Photographer Spotlight


Even as indigenous men and women throughout the world have become at last the ethnographers of their own lives, the custodians and chroniclers of their own narratives and histories, there is still a place in their struggle for allies, supporters from all nations - storytellers and artists, anthropologists and activists - whose efforts can amplify indigenous voices and help garner public support for their political and cultural aspirations. Through the evocative power of his photography, Geza Holzinger has clearly made this his life's mission.
