Kai Behrmann

Our guest for this week’s episode of the podcast is Kai Behrmann.

Kai is an author and photographer from Germany. Born 1977 in Hamburg, he started out studying political science in Berlin (FU Berlin) and Helsinki (Helsingin Yliopisto), obtaining his master degree in 2004. He then set out to work as a freelance writer, spending most of his time living in South America.

Always passionate about photography, he studied professional image-making in Buenos Aires (Universidad de Palermo) to combine both text and photographs in his work. On the streets of Argentina’s buzzing capital, he discovered his passion for street photography.

Roaming around with his camera and getting lost in the city is a meditative experience for him as well as a mean to make sense of the world.

Besides capturing urban life in all its facets, he teaches photo workshops and curates the online magazine “The Art of Creative Photography”.

In his podcast-show “Gate7” he talks about travel and photography as a ticket to explore foreign cultures and connect with people.

In his quest to visually explore the world focusing on the power of the human spirit and social issues he has widely travelled to countries including Argentina, Brazil, Cuba, Chile, Colombia, Uruguay, Bolivia and USA.
